la collecting the information for the Register for 1S'V2, circular.- hare been sent to o - cor- 

respondents in every town in the State, from nearly every one of whom answers have been proi 
j received. 

j Masy other communications have also been received, bod: from puhlie institutions ai_d pri ■ 
[ individuals, with regard to changes to be made. 

It will be seen that some of the inform, itiou usually given in the hoc k h i been Cond< ... 

unimportant matter omitted. Ihjs .has been 4oa« to give space, within re» tl 

forthe very fall account o;f what is now, and has been for the past year, engrossing the public &t.t-r t 
more than any other subject ~jjerhaps mo-e than all others. We scarcely need say that we refer to the 
rebellion, which is now fast being suppressed, and the active part which Massa 
that suppression. 

The great amount of information which we are giving in these pages will hardly be appre< ' .• 
should be, we fear, unless we call attention to the fact that nearly ill the book is set in a much so 
type than usual, giving a great amount of reading to a very imall space. This is pari 
with regard to the Military Department. 

In our historical matter we have endeavored to be accurate, but to give a picture of the times, ra1 
than statistical information. In the regimental narratives we present the most accurate history p 
Mshed, of each of the three month-;' regiments, and each company, from theh leaving W - 
until their return ; and the outlines of the history of each of the Massachusetts regiment: now in the i 
field, fiom their formation until the first of January. 

In conipidiig the military information, wo have Veen aided by several gentlemen connected i ith 
branch of the public service, and in preparing the lists o: mi n\ < ■■•: of the ompanies have had fret 
cets to the rolls in the office of the Adjutant General. 

T-» Trr^r-are entirely accurate list.s of as ties ft$ra tfcoee roils wb» Strand to be imj 
not at ail surprising, when we consider that they were mad* up from reports of the several b 
dred different companies nowia tke-fielu, pfepesr* I by ,•>••• , ■, ■ of whom, of course, were ran 
to such busiuess, <?nd do not realise the importance at hav« • ( im< und residences full and cm 
asm written very plainly. Soldiers are, naturally rad proj ?ri; . thinking more of what shall be ' 
to perfect themselves and their comrades in the an of war, '.:. m in accurately recording their n 

To perfect the information, as far as possible^ without to •;■ much delay, we scut print,, [list I 
the orderly of each company, — except some of the most torn we could net, pes.-: 

obtained returns from in season, — and from near?/ all, rej ni 

very many important corrections, and also to note many changi i ( iftt haTe occurred since the regim 
left the State, such as killed, wounded, prisoner* and missis ; tttl#, prom -t-d, discharged, &c, i ;. 

As the result of the great amount of labor and care which his! »•- n bestowed on this work, tl e ~ 
Ushers feel warranted in saying that it is, doohth sa, I j ic: . ft and most accurate account of I 

Massachusetts military now in the fieJ I thai b&» ret beea offered to the public. 

The publishers renew their thanks to thews who have tssinU . • . the compilation of the work, 
would suggest that any person discovering asetrvr io the ■ •- < !! confer a favor by notifying th< 
it, that it may be corrected in future editions.

In the time of Elizabeth, the great defernPr of Protestantism against Catholic am- 
bition, the middling merchants of the English cities, and the small proprietors ii tl • 
enuntry, in their religious movements separated from the Church of Eugland. Ii 
modes of worship they appealed less to .the senses and more to thenm ig ; they 

sought the spirit rather than the forms of Christianity '—-a purer faith, a simpler w 
and a more liberal system of church government. From this they took the i 

Opposed to them were the Nobility, the Court, the Prelacy, and all those who claimed 
the patronage of the state and the leadership of social circles and of great enterpr 
the great conservatives of the empire. These religious differences entered into ] 
They gave direction to the policies of the state. They finally broke out into i | 
into revolution. The first party took the name of Roundhead, the other that of Cava 
Her; and the two parties are known to-day under the name of Whig and Tory 
war eiidc-d in the death of Charles I., and the elevation of Cromwell as Dicta! I 
the Commonwealth. These two religious-political powers, vrith their diverse constitu- 
tional structures of intellect, sent their several represei Natives to this country. 
Cavalier element settled at Jamestown in 1607, and the Puritan at Plymouth in 1G'_ ; 0. 
The first came under the patronage of the state,\as visionary adventurers in q 
new fields of gain ; the second came as a sect proscribed and persecuted by government, 
to es&blists liberal institutions and religious liberty. 

The Cavaliers, 

The Cavalier? sought wealth and political power. Their religion and theii I 
their s>-l;.;' and educational institutions, were patterned upon tho*eof England. I 
c irried tt eir settlements, their principles, and thfir love of lofty cheer, into Kentuck] . 
and into Southern States. Loving wealth, ease, social distinctions, ami pul 
they naturally fell into the manner and the state of the great proprietor. ^ Th< ir i r- 
Rcteristics followed their enterprise. The same year that the Pilgrims landed at Plj - 
outh, they adopted a system of servile labor; a system in harmony with :. ; ri 
ti'.e political and social -relation ; a system which soon came to be con red i the basw 
of their roomed prosperity. It has grown with their growth, and strengthened with 
their strength, until Virginia has given tone, character and institutions to fifteen sov- 
ereign States and to tcn'miiiions of people. She has been the mother of Presidents, 
as well as of States, and has achieved grand results in the career of empire. 

The Pun' tarn. 
The Puritans, rigid, self-denying, industrious and enterprising, settled in a wilder- 
ness, combat ted resolutely a barren soil and an inhospitable climate, put their own 
hands to the plough, built school houses ami church* s, pp< ned rpads.-tl rough the :' r • 
and up. -n the seas, pushed io<-^-.ixd throng!) the Middle and ty'estern St Ltea, carrying' 
their ideas, virtues, enterprises and general prosperity with them; increased their 
wealth and number*, enlarged the ter7itor\ of t '. . i a great < 

declared always for free labor, for the disnity of labor, for rei /' us md political lib- 
erty, until, by the superior innovating vigor of the Puritan intellect, though Virginia 
was settled first, they* became the controlling inti lie* tual power of the country. 
eU'menus culminated in all their glory in the government and institutkiiw of M**sa- 
chnsMts. In her career of empire, she extended her ideas, institutions and charac- 
teri»tica over nineteen States and twenty millions of people. . 



From these two diver^ih^ streams of colonization hare arisen two arstema of labor, 
tv. j tendencies in political development, two sure of social and i lijrious culture. 
These powers have always been more or less in contention with each other, whii h 
lentioivsweri' seen during the Colonial period, the R< lutioi ■ and Consti- 
t " ; ■•i-.i peri •''.■.. and have now broken out in open hostility in what ui y be termed the 
period of the Jtiebellicn. 

Massachusetts awl j 'irginia. 

Thoush pursuing different paths to greatness, Mi V\ inia have stood 

side by side in allthe great contests of the nation. The oppressions of - 
heavily upon both ci looies. 'i his became a bond of symp; thy, and th< y c irdiallj com- 
bined to -averta common danger. The Revolution was commenced iu Ma 
under the patriots Adams, Hancock and Otis. She ^.>s the first to s] rin» to tl 
cue, the ri'-~ r . to spend he.3 I easure, and pour out her bio >d for the defeat of a con 
enemy. Virginia, if .not as prompt and efficient in furnishing substantial means, pro- 
duced the"'man for the hour," which gave bora leading influence i:> I 
struggle. After the successful close of the greatest revolution of history, the Consti- 
tution w is ad >pted upon pris eiples first practically enunciated under Puritan infli 
in Massachusetts, first foreshadowed in design in the confederation for defence be- 
tween the colonies of Massachusetts Bay, Plymouth, Connecticut, and New Haven. 
The North has always attempted to abide by the spirit of that Constil ition, and history 
will aver that she has attempted most faithfully to carry out the glorious doctrin 
the Declaration of Independence in the spirit of Jefferson of Virginia, and the Fathers 
of the Republic. 

From the close of the Rcvulution, more than ever before, Massachusetts hd Vir- 
ginia, in art,. education, manufactures, commerce, and in all the cssenti Is Oi substantial 
>veu,..h. In iho ;mo.-? political discussions of 1820, these two aj UigonLstic 
fought a hard b.itt'.e for the no aritenance of their peculiar ideas, and Liberty hoped that 
she had gained. a permanent advantage in the Missouri Compromise The North, in 
her expanding trade and commerce, sought the aid of a national b ink, a careful regu- 
lation of the currency system of the country, and. a protective tariff forheriud 
To the latter, the South objected, and South Carolina raised the standard of nullific t- 
tion — a heresy that had the destruction of the Union as a logical result ; but the quick 
thought and iron will of Jackson terrified the monster into submission by the utterance 
of those memorable words, "The Federal Union, it must be preserved." 

Their Contest. 
At this time the results of free thought, justice, religion, sound popular education, 
industry and enterprise had grown to great- stature in the North — they could not be 
quiet. The South began to fear and protest against encroachments upon their in- 
terests. Earnest men and women, actuated by the same zeal that moved Knox, 
Hampden and Pym against church and state in England, talked, wrote, voted, and 
acted within what they deemed constitutional limits, to rid themselves of all responsi- 
bility for the greatest of our national misfortunes. The aristocracy, more than the 
people of the South, finding itself likely to be outstripped in all the essenti tlsof ac- 
tional power, n ade demands upon the government, which demands were belligerent in 
tone, and threatened the destruction of the Union if they were not conceded. To 
Sjuiet ihem a large share of the government patronage and political power was 
to. them. Per the suke of peace, compromises were entered into. They- demanded 
the rendition bill of I8"0; it was granted. They desired the repeal oi the Missouri 
Compromise; it was repealed. Successive national congresses were elected, and com- 
mittees were formed. in both branches favorable to the Virginian rather than to the ' - 
Bachusetts Idea. Presidents were elected, who, for the •■ e of peace, '.'-are con. 
to look with more favor upon them than their just rights and red importance de- 
manded. These aristocrats, not the people, plotted, counterplotted to maintain the 
balance of power, hoping to keep it by political manceuvres-, when it could be retained 
only by educational institutions, wealth,,, trade, commerce-, manufactures, and the 
consequent increase of population. The^e agitations of sentim at i i opinion toon 
extended themselves more decidedly into politics; Massach tsetts always taking the 
lead, with Virginia and South Carolina, two States pledged to the same Idea, m tot- 
opposition. In 18-56, the Republican party, a party embodying the Idea, of Massachu- 
setts, consummated a sufficient working power to hope to elect a Repul liean Presid< nt. 
His election was confidently predicted/ The South was alarm d. and. as she had often 
done, boldly threatened th*> dismemberment of the Union, 'the Republicans were 
defeated, and a Democratic President quieted agitation in a measure ; but all action did 
not cease. The mor<J principle deemed to be involved on the one side, and the personal 
and pecuniary interests on the other, stimulated the opposing elements to continued 
activity. Massachusetts and Virginia, as-the exponents of th d md- aj>u>to- 

cratic principles, were pitted against each othei in open"cohte*t in Kansas and Ne- 
braska. The election of 1660 approached. It had been for some turn evident that, by the 
disintc ^r.t lion of old parties upon the new issues which 1 ri . , ' achu setts 

soon el< ct o'er President. '1 he North had long been consolidating upon hi r Me i. The 
South had long been protesting. The two sections seemed to be withdrawing from for- 
mer intini ite relations, and congregating around their two different centres, 'trie cen- 
tral idea,! of each were deeper than any "peculiar institution " entertained by either. 
Their pec utLr institutions were only accessoiies, adjuncts, logical results of meir dif- 


fet i t id< ■>*: and these Idea3 bad their origin far baek in I. >ry, and have 

grown into greater distinctness and division here because of ti 

in widely separated geographical positions. In I860, Lincoln wa,s eJ cted 1 r 

the first President $iat h id been elected pur ly upon the prim i] 

fiicts bet\ye< n the people of England and James II. and Charles I.; th< princi 

unlvi rsal liberty, equality, toleration, seJf-go\ ernmeut, against their uajust and d< nmr- op pontes. 

in Great Britain, from Elizabeth Tudor to Victoria, the Cavalier or Tory element has 
held the reinsand the patronage of the government, pave during the Cumraoi 
under Cromwell, when the Puritans had the power. Still, that arisi icracj 
a gradual and continual encroachment from the democracy, in proportion as educatioi 
and morality have increased among the middle masses of the people ; ai d oi • byo 
great prerogatives of the Court and Crown have teen torn away and n 
serve the interests of the people. Now, true to their ancient i 

policy, under the Tory lead of the Earl of Derby, and Earl Russell, and Palmerston, 
tin y hold the official action of the government, and subject the movement of th< 
to the. decided advantage of the Aristocracy first established at Jamestown, hi.', I 
decided prejudice of the Democracy first founded at Plymouth. Under the lead of 
Bright, Cobden, and Brougham in England, of far-sighted and patriotic statesi 
the'Unit'ed State-, Democra 'V can only hope for peace and the triumph of its pi ii 
in the coutrol and tiie sovereignty of the two great Saxon constitutional goveri 
of history. 

DovolopmeTit of the Conspiracy.

fehc p&oode. There are .two classes in the South, the slaveholding arisi eracy, and the 
people Th.f poor whites have but little political significance. Th • ■ ' mn ; n- 
tain the trad'itiorrary memories of Virginia; political power 13 their ambition; they 
have th< wealth, education, social culture, and the habit of public life to help them in 
retaining their long-held political ascendancy. They have become attached to this as- 
cendancy, and will nut yield it without a struggle. The masses of the people are be- 
ginning to know their political sigtii'fic nice, arid in the end will overturn the aristocracy. 
'i'ne open war between the Puritau and Cavalier, between Massachusetts and Vii 
between the cpeat Aristocracy and the great Democracy of the Union, has comtn 
In the Presidential election of I860, the Aristocracy met with a Waterloo defeat, and, to 
recover their old ascendancy, organized Rebellion and commenced civil war. It is the 
progress of this Rebellion that we would outline. 

The Conspiracy in 1S32. 
Xt actually corrnr.enced in 1832-3, in South Carolina. She claimed that Jefferson 
maintained the right of a State to judge of the constitutionality of a lav.-, and to nul- 
lify the law if unconstitutional. In her opposition to the tariff of "28 South Ca 
based her action upon this principle. She alleged that this tariff increased the cost )f 
living in the South, and aided the domestic manufacturers of the North. Ilayne took 
up her cause in the Senate, and was defeated by the irresistible iopic of Webster. S iuth 
Carolina called a convention of delegates to cou>mer the crisis; Virginia, by a vote of 
one hundred and fifty-four to >ixty-eiu r ht, passed a vote of nullification ; Alabam .... I 
C-< brgia heartily seconded South. Carolina ; hot North Carolina stood firm for theUi 
The nulliri ation convention of the Sta'es out, Hayne was chosen chairman, the tarins 
of 'aH iWid ' '2 were dcmuiuced as unconstitutional ; it was voted that no appeal !■■ t'l 
Supreme Court of the United States should be listened to ; and that attempts to enforce 
the : l< ii haul 1 he Resisted by mice. The Governor of South Carolina prepared to en- 
force resistance. Mr. Calhoun, Vice-President of the United States, resigned. But 
President Jackson declared nullification to be revolution, and that the Union shwi 
preserved* He prepared to enforce his decrees bj arms — the maimers s>an the hope- 
lessness of their cause, and concluded to submit, and, as far as possible, undo the h r ; 
which they had done. The decision of the President saved the Union. 

But the feeling of envy andL hatred toward the North was not dead. Free labor, 
capital,, and ideas, were gaining an ascendancy in the Union that was dangerou> to 
Southern principles, Trie balance of power must he retained, from 1832 lo i 
two sections kept alive a bitter sectional contest. The Southern leaders looked a out 
them, and found in Mexico a means to .help them to retain the balance of power. For 
a frivolous pretext war was made upon her, and Texas, with a large portion of M 
territory, became a pari of the United States. Slave St ttes were provided for from this 
territory, and this accomplished one more result for the Southern aristocracy. 
As another act in toe great programme, the Fugitive Slave bill of 1850 was 
Mith was again triumphant, and the North indignant. The peo- 
'onstitiitium.l provisions for the rendition of fugitives, declared 
come the slave -catch crs oi the South. They carried their oppu- 
the pulpit, the courts, the streets. Notwithstanding this, their 
'■■ re-nce for law was such, that iu many instances the provisions of the law were p r- 
'• ■'• '- to. be executed. Ttie discussions of. agitators upon this law widened the ^ , 
'*■'•• en the North and the South. 

i m progress of the reDelliou again appeared in Congress in 1854. Douglass intro- 
duced a bill providing that any State applying for admission to the Federal Union might 
''•:'.' in with or without siavery, as her constitution might provide; also that the 
i" ''.'•■ of 'he territories might legislate for themselves, taking .away the power of 
Congress u> legislate fur them. These were the State and Squatter Sovereignty doctrines.

The Presidential election of 1860 approached. The democratic convention was 
at Charleston. The ultra Southerners took, an extreme position upon the slaverj 
tion. The moderate democrats of the North could not sust iii - i< The partj 

and the ultra ists nominated Breckenridge, and the seceding f ction nominated 1

secession to belierpollc} , forgetting ihedu: \ of the misoritj to yu Id ; i nd, sided * 
in the confidence of thesrovernment, she commenced plotting & : rebellion, and qwil war. 

The Conspiroxy in I860. 

The work of disintegration soon commencedj South Carolina taking the initiatory. 
November 5, 18*60, her Governor issued a secession message, and counselled the I e»is- 
lature to consider the crisis, and prepare to defy the power of the United Stat s, 
December 2Qth her convention unanimously passed an ordinance of secession. The 
fire, once lighted, spread rapidly throughout the Cotton States. January Oth Mi -' 
sippi followed in her footsteps,; on Hie llth, Alabama; the 12th, Florida ; the 19th, 
Georgia; the 28th, Louisiana*; and February 1st, Texas,— all passed ordii ai i oi 
seces i;m; thus dissolving their political connection with the UnitedStates of Am 

November 9th and. 11th, t:h,e sen ators and representatives oi South Carolina in 
gress withdrew, and on January 21st those of Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida ret 
theii seats; and on February oth fill those of Louisiana, sav* Bouligny, withdrew. 

The process of dissolution was not confined to the secession of States and the w tl - 
drawal of members from Congress. Members of the Cabinet residing in the South 
States considered their allegiance to their States superior to that, to the United States. 
December 10th, Cobb, of Georgia^ Secretary of the" Treasury, and the 29th, Floj 
Virginia, Secretary of War, resigned their places in the Cabinet. Through their un- 
paralleled treachery to the Government that had given them the highest confb ei 
they had so crippled the forces of the Union, in the robbing of mon -y and arms, that 
the interests of secession were assisted -nearly into an equality of [ iwer with the rest oi 
the Colon. 

Tnt work thus commenced whs not to be brtlf-wa\ — -th position rakeH was | 
sustained by arms. In December, South Carolina's Leaislature authorized the seizure 
oi all ursenais, aim*, and forts, within her limit*. January -. : :. Governor Bcown, of 
Georgia, ordered the seizure of Forts Pulaski and Jackson, at Savannah; on the - 
the authorities of Alabama seized Fort Mo san ; on the 10th the authorities of Mis ;-• 
sippi seized the forts and other United States property wiihin her limits; on toe 12th 
the Navy Yard and property at Pensacola were take./; on the 2Bih the rebels of Louis- 
iana took the United States revenue cutter, and other property, and the money in the 
mint at New Orleans; and, to complete t h-hs list of plundering, General L'w-i 
Texas surrendered the United Sta,tes forces and property in his hands into the power 
of the rebels. The forts seized were armed and manned, the arsenals were rol . . 
the militia of the cotton States was called out, and every material preparation made 
to withstand any attempt of the Union for self-preservation. Legislatures were con- 
vened, ndnute "men organized, mass meeting* held, the suspension of banks was 
legalized, million, were voted to carry oat the nefarious designs of the secessionists; 
Southern rights associations were organized, Northern men were duly arrested, Union

The secessionists would not be conciliated; they would have disunion ; and i 
of all the efforts of eminent men, the patriotic appeals of a large class of ( 
distinguished for 'he moderation of their temper and tne dignity of their 
and the wise deliberations of peace conventions, seven States and four i 
people were drawn into the whirlpool of secession. Confess met, and adjo 
again, unable to do anything save leave the fate of the Union hi the hands of 1 
incoming Administration. 

President Iiir.ocdn's Inaugural. 
Trie fourth of March approached, the day that was to seethe departure of an old, 
SBid.the advent of a new Administration in the midst of pending serious n 
calamities. The opinions of the incoming Executive were i: ■" foi '• '"' tn ' ; l0st 
i ; ; 1 ; ■ : . < ■? interest, — as was his pfcogj«e5&i watched from Spri srfi i, Illinois, to 
tngtori. In Karirlsburg, Pennsylvania, bo had intimation of a plot for bis : -- ■ - 
nation while passing through Baltimore. At the earnest solicitation of his friei - 
he made a hurried departure from Philadelphia, and a disguised passage thro 
Baltimore, thus cheating the minions of secession in that city of a coveted upportun ty 
to make themselves infamous. He arrived in Washington Feb. 23d. U| on the 41 
March, A. 1). 1861, Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, was duly sworn in as President d! tin 
United States, for four years from that date. The ceremony was solemn and impr 
in the extreme. Rumors of revolt, of assassination, of a destruction of the Cap ' • 
that day, were rife, which put the Executive authorities upon their guard. ' 
Scott, the great soldier and the firm and faithful patriot, so organized his for 
disposed them throughout the city, and in the vicinity oi* the capital, that assassii 
was improbable. Thus the barbarism of those in the interest of secession co 
the capital of the Great Republic to assume the appearance of a feudal city a th> 
years before, when fear and the sword ruled, instead of justice and moral dignity of 
character. The ceremonies were completed without disaster or crime, and his inai 
was delivered from the bdeony of the Capitol. Every man North and South looked for 
each word with deepest interest, for iu that they saw would be foreshadowed the new 
policies that were to deal with and master the fierce political and revolutionary elements 
of the day. We will state bis most important positions. 

His Position. 
Hes;<H,at the outset, "■{ lm*e no purpose; directly or indirectly, to-ihtt*rf«r( ' I 
the institution of slavery in the States where it exists," and alarmed the right oi 
State to control its own domestic institutions according to its own judgment. He re- 
insured the people that the prosperity, peace, and security of no section w..s to be en- 
dangered by the inc.iminn Administration, and assured all the States of protects , 
under the Constitution. The obligation to abide by the Constitution in the rei.di i 
of fugitives was strongly asserted, and amendments t<> the laws under which they were 
to be rendered up were suggested. The disruption of the Union was formidd y • '■- 
tempted, but he held. tha* the Union-was perpetual, and 'that the Con : 
no provision for its own termination, and that it was impossible to de-troy the I i 
save by some actio n not contemplated in the Constitution. The Union was 1 
older than the Constitution ; — as formed by the Articles of Association of 1774, 
nearly matured in the Declaration Of Independence it; 1776, further matured in the 
Articles of Confederation of 1778, and finally perpetually completed in the adoption of 
the Constitution in 17S7. Therefore it follows that any resolves or ordinances to th« 
effect of dissolution are void; anv acts of violence, in any State, against the auth rity 
of the United Sutes, are insurrectionary or revolutionary. In his view, he cousider* 4 
the Union unbroken, and said, "I shall rake -cure, as the Constitution itself enj ins me, 
thai the laws Of the Union shall be faithfully executed in all the Stati s; .... 1 this I 
*haM do, unless my. rightful masters, the American people, "shall withhold the v< uisi- 
tkm, or in so ne authoritative manner direct the eonti ir> .'" He trusted that this 
v ' t he regarded as a menace, but only as a dei lared | urp >se of the Union to maint iin 
■■' elf. He said that i« doing this '* there should be no bloodshed, unless it w> . 
'Upon the national .authority." lie asserted that the power given to hint "should b< 
used to hold, occupy* and possess the properly and pin - I igin« to th< government, 
■ dlect the duties and imposts;" that' beyond this there should be '• no invasion, i • 
u*ii g nf force against or among the people anywhere." Obnoxious officers were out to 
b* i -icd upon ihe people; the mails were tobt furnished to all ports of the Union, 



Then followed quickly those acts that brought the a git itioi s of the houv to an i 
Th' Secessionists would not tolerate neutrality — they compelled men to declare their 
faith. Fort Sumter had long been besieged -and ..was "in a MitTering condition. It be- 
came the duty of the- Government to send t > it supplies, and it informed the authoritit s 
at Charleston that those supplies should be sent peaceably if possdble, but fort i 


unless repelled; and this course was to br pursued, unl 

Diodifii ation would be proper. He said nothing to those seeking to destroy the I 

but appealed strongly to the patriotism ofthosewho loved tin Union. No instai 

was recoMected in which a plain provision of the Constil ioi : » n denied. It 

would justify revolution --for a maj rity to refuse u minority an; > r ii 

majority or the miuoritj twist acquiesce in the coi 

tn iiis opinion, ' Plainly, the cent tal idea of s •<•<■ *ion is the eesei ; of anai 

also, a majority held in cheek by Constitu'ti mal provisions was th. only true sow i 

of a free people. He doubted the justice of having the policj of the Governn nt 

irrevocably fixed by the decisions of the Supreme Court, 

cause of difference between the two sections was, that - ne - ; ■:■ 

was right, and ought to be extended, and the other that it was wrong, and ougl t not 

to be extended. Physically speaking, we cannot separate; and I ignificaj 

*'Cari aliens make treaties easier than friends can make laws ? " II- would recommend 

no amendment to the Constitution, but if the people desired it, would favor rather than 

oppose a fair opportunity for the people to act upon one; and be had no objecti 

an express and irrevocable amendment that Congress should not meddle with tin 

mestic institutions of the States-. "In your hands, 5 - ii be, " my dis Lti .■• 

countrymen, and not in mine, is the momentous issue of eivii w,.r. The Goveri 

will not -assail you; you can have no conflict without yourselves bcin 

Yuu have no oath registered in heaven to destroy the government; while I shall have 

the most solemn one to ' preserve, protect, and defend it. ' " 

Thus he assumed his positions within the Constitution and the laws and for the law- 
ful continuance or' their sovereignty in all the State- of the Union. No friend of tlje 
Union could complain- at his distinct statements, and his logical views of the diffic lti a 
of the hour. The friends of the Union had hoped that he, though all '•■•'■ to 1 i elected 
by a sectional party, would abandon all sectionalism in his S( ntiments, if he entertained 
any, and see Nothing but his whole country, the ores* rvation of the peace, the prot< t tion 
of a!! men in their legal rights. In this Inaugural, they saw that they wt-ie not d 
pointed. Not possessing the polish of literary culture, it ha i a plain, business-like 
directness in evict harmoiiy with the parliament sty spirit of the age, which seel 
accomplishment of practical results, rather than well turned phrases and high-toned 
eloquence in a state document. His commencement was the omen of a succc 


Fort Sumter. 
Throughout the North the Inaugural was received with decided approbation. The 
clouds seemed to break away from the future, for the Government was seen to have a 
policy, a decision of character not so easily discovered in the Administration ju 
Btgningits power. In the South, among the Secessionists, the Inaugural was denounced 
as a declaration of war, and anathema and d< rision were showered upon the head oi him 
w ho was faithfully seeking to lead a div id. d nation to peace. The public sentiment of the 
North commenced concentrating around the President, to sustain the flag of the. Union 
wherever it was insulted or tons down. Loyaltj was the sentiment and the word of 
the North. The Executive, thus backed by the people, commenced the most cauti >us 
movements to avoid an open rupture, yet to maintain the dignity of the laws. But 
the Secessionists, crying out 'against the tyranny and the sectionalism of the Ni rtl 
secretly Laid their plan? to force the Governm at "a eons nt to peaceable secession or to 

The Congress of the Confederate States passed their Army bill, to organize a mate- 
rial force with, which to maintain theit hostile position. Iheii action did not pause 
with resolves, — the} put iheir thoughts into deeds, and compelled the friends of the 
Union to believe that there was no alternative but a civil war or a dissolution i 
Union. March 18th, by a general order, General Bragg cut off the supply of fuel, 
water, and provisions, to the armed vessels of the United States in Pens. .cola harbor. 
On the 12th, the Confederate Commissioners, believing that they co\ild coerce the 
North into a peace*! le negotiation for a dis solution of the Union, prei ume I to a I 
a note to Secretary Seward, in which they expressed a d .- : <- to ipen a negotiation far 
a peaceful separation of the States. Mr. 'Seward very properly replied tothem ti it 
should refuse to recognize them as agents, or hold official or diplomatic intercourse 
with them. 

At Savannah, Ga., on the 21st, was the first great annunciation of the principles 
upon which the Southern Confederacy was to be founded. Mr. Alex mder Ii. Stevens, 
the Yi; e-Presidcnt of the Confederate States, in a speech upon the sol jpcr, said of his 
government, "Its foundations are hid, its corner stone re&ts, upon the (/rent truth that t -

The drama now rapidly commenced to thicken. April 8th, Beauregard inf

Anderson replied that his sense of honor, and his obligation to bis Gov» nment, ;... 
vented his complying with the demand, and also stati ^ to the bearer, that he 

should be starved out in. a few days if he was not battered to pieces. Wall i 
quued at what time he would evacuate, and Anderson repli i on the loth, if he d >t

The Baltic. 
At 4, A.M., nineteen batteries commenced pouring their iron hail into the fort. 
This opened the battle that was to determine the last great issue between the Ancient 
Barbarism and the Modern Civilization.

Thefioating battery of the rebels, with its slant roofof heavy iron, proved a m< t 
ual resistance to cannon shot than was anticipated, and was but little injured. Fort 
Moultrie did not stand our heavy and well-aimed guns as well. The lire of the :• els

After two days' firing at the flagstaff, a portion was shot away. The officers' quarters 
were destroyed. The barracks caught fire several times on the first day and were ex-

were destroyed, and ta complete the work of destruction, the fort took fire on all 
Through fear th it it would communicate with the powder magazine, ninety-six I r 
of powder were thrown into the sea. The cartridges soon pave- out, and sheets, shirts, 
and blankets were used in making them, until these gave out also, and there w: s 
lutelv nothing with which to continue fighting. The mensuftered all-things but e

Thus matters stood in a most critical and desperate condition, until the close i

that Wigfall was not authorized by Beauregard. The brave Major Anderson fi

two, at the firing of the last gun in the salute ; and they "were buried at the fool ot the

The ne^.s of the fall of'Sum'tei went lITTe a ih • I ,.. >lt through the lai •:. 
tial sprit of the people was aroused; These gui ig theii in, a

that tin rn was no rele ise i om tl e obligation to rise up, an I, as on? i to the 

annihilation of the powers of the Rebellion. Nevei British blood n r Celtii ire 1 
quicker at an outrage offered to their nation's honor, than did tl i sprii g I i 

redeem his flag from this deep disgrace. 

Before, the President had hesitated to precipit; te events, for fear that u e might add 
one straw to the lighting of the fires of civil wai anions thirty millions of people. >■■ 
would rather err on trie side of mercy ; he would rathi slow to a i ; slow to hu;l 

the North and the South, those two gigantic powers .. ii teacl mortal con- 

flict. Hence the myrmidons of secession were allowed to build then ; ii erie . 
their guns, and threaten t<> belch their fires upon the cherished institute i - 
Union, as long as a hope was -left that they might recent of their haste, and with- 
draw from their work of ruin. But now the last ray Of hope was fled, l'hfi President 
of the United States had nothing to do but to strike in return. Justice, mercy, duty 
to millions,' urged him to strike, and he no longei h - aied. He immediately called 
his counsellors together. They heard the cry of the people, and that it was to arms. 
As their official Executive, he saw there was no cause, no time for deli i ,: ■ ;.. Im- 
mediately the proclamation went forth, on the Loth n" April, the day afti r I m •■ II , 
to execute the laws of the land. As the laws of the Union were 
>utb Carolina, Georgia, Alab a-aia, Florida, -Mississippi, Louisi na and 
dilations too powerful to be supprpssed by the ordii 
til forth the militia of the several States to the number of 75,0 
>. He appealed to all loyal pco,dc to aid in maintaining the nation's 
ituity of popular government, and to redress the wron is already long 
enough enduted. 

And here comes a part of the Proclamation that should be read by all men in the 
South ; that should be fastened upon their doorposts, so that they could not fail to 
understand it, and show that this is a war not against the legal rights of any man, 
— that it is to protect all men, and the peace of the country. 

4i [deem it proper, n he said, "to say that On \ first service assigned to the forces heref»j 
catted forth, will probably be to repossess the forts, plnci ?. awl property which \ ' d

lie commanded the persons composing These combinations to retire peaceably to their 
respective abodes within twenty days from date. 

He also summoned both Senators ai d Representatives to assembb in their rpspeetive 
Chambers at noon, on July 4th, and there dels rminr such measures as the public safety 
and interest might demand. 

Oil the huh of April, he issued another Procl imation. declaring the > i rts of theStates 
of Sotith Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas — 
t&enorts of ail the States that h id seceded — or a state o! bloek U . 

On the 27th of Aniil, he issued an iher Pj - i uu a don, declaring :> o ports of Yir- 
trinis'itndNorth Carolina un'd d K ';.':, tlie^ ■ - . in'g s c; d'' since the date oi"tl -; - 
ceding Proclamation. 

On the 3d of May, h r deemed if necessat v to i ;sue anottu r Pr( clam, tion, calling for 
42,000 Vi lunteers to s< rv« fur three years, unless tin y wt-re soon< roischarged. lit abo 
directed that the regular army be increased by 22JHmen ; and also called for the en- 
listment of 18,0.00 seamen for the naval service. 

On the 10th of May, he declared, ny Proclamation, martial law upon the islands of 
Key West, the Tortugas, and Santa Rosa, and Florida. 

On the- 12th- of August, be also issued another Proclamation, appointing the last 
Thursday in September as a day of humiliation and prayer and tasting, for all the 
people of the nation. 

And on the loth of August, he issued his last Proclamation, declaring the seceded 
State, in a state of insurr< ction, nod interdict* d all commerci i intercourse v\ith them. 
Immediate!} upon the first Proelamati' n, the Seeretar] oi Wd I a call to the 

Governors of the several States for three mouths' men, to be letnilcd run the militia 
of the Slate, for each man to take the oath of allegiane* to the Government, and to 
be mustered into the e< rvice of the roiled Sta u s as soon as possible. 

The national Executive had done his dory. lie bad no precipitated war upon the 
country ; war had been 'forced upon him-; and now, as Commander-in-Chi f, be could 
fight, and feel the power of justice was in his swo'rd. It only tern foi th< people 

to respond to bis call, and by their acts show to him, and to all the world, whether or 
brt tk in two the Great ll- ' li '• 

not It Was so c. 

Response of the People. 

The Fiery Cross had gone forth; the summons to twenty-five millions had been 

some!' d, and on the instant, wo saw a "noble and puissant natij u i iu ii ., herst-lf ike 

a strong man from sleep, and shaking her invincil le lo< Vs." Time « nough had been 

speut in urging mea&ures of conciliation. Force w as now the only appeal. The Northr 


- (. mt, cahn in his hrfs'te, buckled on the Vul ftnian panoply of war, and b*| 
ihow stern front to Hydra-headed Rebellion. The people ft It the magnitude of their 
U*K, and showed themselves equal to its undertaking. 

Secessia received the Proclamation with star <■ of denunciation ; si 
;■. . leas and infuriated mob to any and all point where si could al 
y, to thwart the action of the President. 
Citizens, but not governments^ in the Southern boi , :.- itated to tal 

fearful plunge. The Executives of every State South, save that of Delaware and 
M iryland, threw their swords into, the Southern balance. 

i'nc madness of the Secessionists b"came a frenzy to grasp the material and the 
advantages of war. They declared to all the South that they had beenatta ked, that 
trie war was to be a svar for their subjugation, that it was the ambition of the N" » r r • , :•> 
rule by the sword, and to mako war upon their institutions. They.onlj asked I-; be 
let .done, and there would be no war. Certainly there can be D ) fighting if wo do r. ,t 
opp >>e the assassin aiming at our life. 

With this logic in their mouths, the Government was denounced, and the Union was 
to be overthrown. Governor Magoffin, of Kentucky, positively r fus ' i furnish men 
" to aid," ;is he said, "in subduing the sister Southern States." Governor Harris, of 
Tenuc >see, would not furnish men. fur the Union, hut, if necessary, 5 
Governor Jackson, of Missouri, and Ellis, of North Carolina, followed in ihc footsteps of 
Magoffin and Harris. Governor Letcher, of Virginia, forgetting and trampling uader 
his feet the memories nf Henry and Madison, Jefr'etson and Washington, replied to the 
Secretary of War, and told him that he derided the useless purpose of si ju 
the South, and that Virginia would not furnish troops for that purpose, but Would si ud 
troops to oppose it with determination. 

tyimc-diately. upon the p issage of the ordinance of s^eessi m in secret session by ; 
of 60 to 59, he recognized the Southern Confederacy by proclamation, ordered t . .■ 
Kinking nf ves- lsat the entrance of Norfolk harbor, and issued a proclamation for the 
militia of the State to hold itself in readiness to answer an immediate i all for action. 
He struck for Harper's Ferry, with its 15,000 stand of arms and machinery, but the 
gallant Lieutenant Jones snatched them from his gr-isp, by their sudden destruction. 
He attempted to seize the -Gosport navy yard, but that was destroyed, and tue ships 
of war Peons) ivania, Delaware, Columbus, Merrimac, llaritan, Columbia, Germantowc, 
Plymouth, Dolphin, and United States, were scuttled and set on fire, and the Cumber- 
land was towed out. Governor Hicks of Maryland, Unionist, refusing to convene 
the Maryland Legislature, give the President notice that no more troops rould go 
thruug'h Baltimore without fighting their way. Of all the Southern Stales, Governor 
Barton, of Delaware, on the 26th of April, called for Union troops. Davis, the dictator, 
replied to the proclamation by calling fur 32,000 men from the seceded States, andissu- 
tnghis L a t<-ers of Marque and Reprisal to prey upon Northern commerce, thus adding 
barbarism to treason. 

The North, too, sprang to its feet. Governors convened legislatures, and not a 
single Executive became false to his allegiance to the Constitution of the United 
States. The Banks everywhere off. red their capital for furnishing supplies, arming and 
equipping troops, and forwarding them immediately to the seat of war. The batiks of 
Boston vo:e4-aloaii of ten per cent, of their capital; und the legislature of New York 
vote \ ' 'v'i ) men an 1 3,000 .000 of money for the same patriotic purpose. Pjrominen-t 
Bs '" i .'-• rwwhere, those distinguished for their integrity and influence, by lottc-- and : y 
puTme s'pet eh, joined their voices in encouraging the people to do t'he great work bcfo'i e 
them. Mt etiug-* were held in every town and city, resolves passed, money raided, and 
m>: enlisted. In the principal cities exasperated people, no longer willing to stiifer 
p&.tief tiy with those whose principles struck at the heart of law, visited men, and news- 
pa i offi es, suspected of sympathy with secession, compelled them to di-avow their 
i utiinei -. uid rahe the stars and stripes^ The Flag of the Union never before 
received »ueb homage. Its folds appeared upon every housetop in the Northern 
States, and men liKiked upon them with a new honor, love and reverence. Union 
badges, the r a, white, ami blue, were worn by everybody, so that all men declar d 
then principles to all men upon the street. Everywhere, partisan feeling was laid aaid • ; 
the pop!" knew no Democrat, no Republican, no Abolitionist; all men moved to the 
step and the music of the Union. New York, the metropolis in which secession 
dreamed that -she s>w sufficient corruption' to aid her treason, would listen to nothing 
but sentiments of loyalty, and pledged her millions, at the hands of her merchant 
princes, to cru>h secession at its birth. Rhode island, though the smallest of the 
States, was not behind the old Bay State, and the Empire Sate, in the promptitude of 
her reply to the cal! of the President, and in her action, gave herself a glorious record 
upon the pa'ge of history. Mintaty companies spranvg'up ready. ariwedj like Minerva 
from the. head of Jupiter, from Maine .to 'Minnesota, from the Northern lakesto Ma- 
ion and Dixon's line, and begged to be sent to the scene of action. The Germans, 
Irish, Scotch, and English — men who had fled frosu the Old World's oppressions and 
b»x ri , — flew to arms'to defend their adopted" country. In se< ioi they saw only an 
oh', itchy and a tyrant, who would, in America, enact another thousand years of 
Kurope, with its age of bitterness for man, and only its few years of glory. Not only 
p irtisan and secton il strife w< re forgotten, but Protestant and Catholic, who had been 
*- r - battle since the days of Luther, forgot their religions differences, joint d bauds, sent 
*" W J ayers lo one God o l battles, and ashed Hun to crown tueir united purpose with 



Thus, in the North, the State authorities and ih< r>< »p!e " collected their scattered 
element a of strengthj and aw ikened their dormant thunders,-" to hur! d< itruction upon 
Secession; upon those seeking; to encompass the ruin of the b#st government >i 
earth, or of history. Governors and legislatures, without on« word i thought of 
treason, or of sympathy with' tho e who' had beerv-fw two turies, tli : - Southern 
brethren, now-thafe the hour of compromise and 1)f - tienc had gone, and the hour of 
war had come, sprang forth to seize every advantagi that nature and prosperity had 
placed in their hands, to sustain what the South would destroy. The moral grandeur 
of the spectacle was sublime in the extreme. Neither Greece at Thermopylae, nor 
Rome with an Attila at her gates, stood clothed with mightier habiliments of moral 
power. Before, the authorized national Executive had .--;.; the beh< >f law, the 
people stood with folded anus, waiting and hoping that the 5 iuth woul 1 return to her 
reason; stood calm, and saw their forts and arsenals stolon, seized, dismantled, and 
turned Hgainst them, — saw frowning batteries ready t i si irra iron hail upon theii gar- 
risons and beloved flag, which, in all its history, had never been huml led; vet moved 
not to defence^ and spoke words of conciliation and candor. But tvhen the law said 
war, war it was. This patience of the. people; this respect of the people for law ; this 
Buddenand united uprising. of the people in solid Macedonian phalanx, gave the lie to 
the political philosophy of a Pahnerston and a Derby, to the carping critics and 
admirers of an effeminate European aristocracy, who had no faith in the moral dignity 
of man, no faith in self-government, no faith in the American democracy. The highest 
results of civilisation in the Brinish Empire, the uprising of her people against the 
tyranny of a Stuart or a Guelph, can show no hig'm r dvi:<L Itemoeracy, for all 'the 
ages, teas vindicated.

We have sketched the opening of the war, the Proclamation of the President, and 
(he response of the people ; now we propose a brh f sk '; : of the rebellion. 

Apr i ~'i, John Bell, of Tennessee, cast his lot with rebellion. lie, with many oth- 
ers, was borne down by the tempest of popular treason. !.■ - \ here it' the North, ar.d 
in the South, on the last Of April, all was confusion an.'! disorder. The Governors of 
the Southern State? wsere using their executive -functions to aid the advances of re- 
bellion ; the armed mobs, and those who had the name of troops, were seizing and 
destroying, and appropriating to their own purposes bonds and monies of the United 
States in the collectors' offices, steamers and vessels belonging to Northern men, forts 
and arms. Numerous Southerners, in Washington, refused to take the oath of alle- 
giance, and resigned their positions. 

M»y saw the continuance of disorder. The "bill to hold a State convention passed 
the legislature vi North Carolina, when secession iei irae evident for that State 
also. Lim Connecticut legislature, actuated by a different principle, voted $'2,000,000 
to slistain the government. May sixth, Virginia, the mother of Presidents, was 
admitted to the Southern Confederacy; the Arkansas convention voted, 69 to 1. to 
secede, the rebel Congress made public the War and Privateering Act ; and the Ken- 
tucky legislature met to drag that old State on? of the C ion. if possible ; and on the 
next day the Governor of Tennessee announced a military league between that State 
attd-.the Southern Confederacy".. Between this time an J the 2-iih, the frame activity 
exhibited ibwlfin all the States, North a ;i o South; iroop* rushing to Washington 
from the 2v>rth, and rebels arniin : and organ i;dng in all t:ie v: xif.h. The m-fist notice* 
£:hU/ feet of tbe%e c-ys was the aneinpt 6i the rebel's to take Kentucky out of the 
Union, under the lead of her traitor Governor Magofhn. On the tw. nth th, when he 
found it impossible to coerce her into disunion, he issued his proclamation of Neu- 
trality — thus giving a quasi assistance to rebellion, and resistance to the North. 

On' the 24th occurred the general advance of the Union forces across trie Potomac 
into Virginia, for the purpose Of occupying Arlington Heights, which commanded the 
City of Washington, and erecting defences against the approach of the rebels in that 
direction. Upon their advance, the rebels evacuated Alexandria, which was immedi- 
ately occupied by our forces under Col. Ellsworth. At this time occurred the deaih of 
F.iia worth, who was bhot by the traitor Jackson, tire landlord of the Marshall House. 

Colonel Ephraim Elmer Ellsworth was horn at MechanicsviHe, a small town in Sara- 
toga County, N. Y-, on the banks of the Hudsao-, April hi. ISiJ?. His father's fortunes 
were completely wrecked in the financial disasters of that period, and he was never 
able to retrieve them. Young Ellsworth was thrown on his own resources. After 
various employments in Troy and New York, and pursuing studies at a great sacrifice 
tbatt.pecult.irly fitted. him to enter West Point, and aftei ineMeetual, attempts to enter 
thstfplace, and his failure for the Want of political influence, he rfinoyco to Chicago, 
and there .successfully engaged in business is a patent ay;ent. Fraud deprived him of 
much of the fruit oi his industry. Not losing heart, he resolved upon the study of 
law, arid coined something h\ copying ir those hours that o f h r- wore devoting to 
relaxation. But war wa«j pri tiileetion ; and he per! ted himself in the exercise 
of the swordsman, marksman and the gymnast. lit looked upon these for higher 
purposes than those of the duelist; he sought to improve by- popularizing the light- 
iiif ri.try drill of the militia, For this purpose he studied the light-infantry drill of 
France, as exercised in Africa, Kus*rh am! Italy. Lie dev ted himself to a thorough 
study of the French Manual, translated under ti.e direction of Hardee. Having made 


himself its master, he ga-there I i uind him a nui her of men of 1 . p r ite

to Washington to receive a lieutenant's commission as preliminary to his entrance to 
the'War Department, where he hoped to create the Militia Bureau of which he had 
long been" preparing a plan. 

The war broke oat — the call was made for volunteer? — Ellsworth, disgusted with T i.« 
political corruption of Washington, hastened to New York, to raise a Zouave regiment 
of the firemen of that city; whose metal he well knew. He had an interview with the 
Chief of the Fire Department; the Chief issued the call, and in two days I 
hundred names were enrolled. Ten companies were accepted, and proceed ■ to -Fort 
Hamilton to drill. He was now in his element. His regiment became the pet of New 
York. They received their stand of colors before leaving the city. On the secon* i ' 
May, less than three weeks after he had leu Washington, alone, without.-authority, with 
nothing but' hi- own will, he was again in that city at the head of a splendid regiment, 
created from the citizens by his own energy. He worked on, drilling and con tr<

cf honorable German parentage, whose ancestors distinguished themselves in the 
Revolution, at Monmouth and Princeton. As a hoy, he whs studious, yet had the 
qualities of firmness and courage strongly developed. In 1850 he received an appoint- 
ment as cadet at West Point, and on the 1st of July, 1864, gra loat< d v ith high honors 
in his class. He immediately entered the army, received a commission as 
second lieutenant in the Second Artillery, and was stationed at Newport barracks. In 
September he was made second "lieutenant, and ivent to Tampa, Florida. He «h 
engaged here two years, and took active part in the Indian troubles caused bj 
Bowlegs. After going home sick, in 1S56 he returned with recruits, and resumed active 
service, and discharged, for a time, the duties of quartermaster and commissary. In 
December, 18-56, he Was appointed acting assistant professor of Ethics at the military 
academy, and held that position until Oct. 1860, having, in the mean time, been pro- 
moted to a first, lieutenancy. As professor, he was required to give instruction in 
History, Rhetoric, Elocution, Internationa! and Constitutional Law, the Constitution 
ot' the United Stales, and Logic. In October, 186'), as he repeatedly solicited active 
service, he v,is ordered to Fortress JWLonxp-e, On May 2fith he was sent to Newport

instruction in the handling of artillery. Col. Phelps, commandant at Newport News, 
w.;.s ordered to march at midnight, and attack and surprise the rebels at Little Bethel. 
Guide was detailed by him to command the artillery. He obeyed with alacrity, but 
remarked to a brother officer that the expedition was ill-advised; that no pond could 
come of it, and that he feared that he would no 1 ; coins off the field alive. At midnigl I 
he left Newport News with two six-pouadvr-s, with only two mules to draw the one, and 
100 men the other. Two miles in the advance, with one gun and 11 artillerymen, he . 
heard firing in the rear. He returned to the point, arid found his other gun firing into 
a Brooklyn regiment. This notified the enemy of his approach, when they retired to 
their w./rks at Camp, Creek. In siyht .>;' the enemy's works, he planted his gun, opened 
fire, ami steadily advanced to within 100 yards ci the works. Wb*n urged to retire, or

guns, but one, by the accuracy of Ids aim, They made a sortie; he drove them back 
With his grape. 1 'he officers near him urged him to dodge or retreat, when he replied, 
" 1 never dodge: and when 1 hear the notes of the bugle calling a retreat, I will,

June 11, occurred the brilliant victo y of Col. V allace at Romney, Virginia, • 
600 rebels were, surprised and routed. June 17, the rebels attacked a train til • 
Dulon soldiers, by opening tire upon it from masked batteries. It was a barbai ■■■ 
work; eight of oar soldiers were killed. And on the same day was fough 
brilliant battle of the war so {.n-, the brut:..- of Booneville, by General Lyon, v, ■ 
largely superior force, under Price and Jackson, were completely rou - ■■■•. On tl 
of "June General McClellan took command in western Virginia, and soon commenced 
the display of that consummate generalship that lias already added so mi 
American arms. And so June passed by, with the assaults of the armed i ' 
uu Lrters where they could gather in sufficient numbers, and in solid preparation ' 
Union forces for the great contest before them. 

July 1st occurred the fight at Buckhannan, Va., where the rebels were routed with 
23 killed and 203 prisoners; and on the 2d the buttle at Martinsbi i : h 
rebels were again routed. July 5, Col Siege! fought the battle of Cartha ;e in MU 
where the rebels lost 3-50 in killed and wounded; a battle that gav.e the stamp of 
superior strategy to the military genius of Siegel. July 11 occurred the battle of Rich 
Mountain in Western Virginia, where Cbl, Rosencranx defeated Col. Pegram, took 
all his camp equipage, many prisoners, and killed 60 of the enemy. Juh 
Carricksfoid, the rebel General G-arneti was killed, and the rebels defeated, with he ivy 
lo-s. This battle cleared then) out of Western Virginia. July 18 was ".• firs

2ist was fought the great battle of Bull ll\ir\, with 18,U09 t ten ou our sidi , rid 27,0 
in action on their side. In a desperate conflict of ten ho xxs we almost won the I 
when an unaccountable panic occurred, and sent our army, in complete rout, bn k 
their' fortifications on the Potomac. We lost 479 killed, 1611 wounded, .. io I 
prisoners. The rebels lost 393 killed, and 1200 wounded. Among the killed : I

He learned books well at classical schools and at a commercial academy in H ■■ 
His mind was active, and he learned more than books, lie turned much of Ids atten-

iion, he rallied to the defence of the government. This decided his inclination at .' 
career to arms. When the Mexican war broke out, he hastened, unattended, to W: 
ington, and, by las own personal exertions, male his way to the ear -of the Presid it, 
and obtained a commission as first lieutenant ixt the Eighteenth, under Colonel Ran-

hesitation. When a second regiment was required, he was made colon I, and 
thorized to raise it. He soon raised and had the regimentready for war. His reg- 
iment opened the battle of Bull Run, and he fell at the head of. his regiment at the 
moment the enemy were giving way before- ;him. He was ever distinguished for his 
attention and kindness to the wants of t is men, and for ids heroism. In th

James Camerori was bora at Maytown, Lancaster County, Pa., March 1, 1 SO 1 . On 
his forty-seventh births-day, he thus reviewed his own life: "Tnis day, forty six years 
a^o, a child w,w born in a beautiful obscure town, in the interior of Pennsylvania,

thickets of life*' lie was a cow-boy, ar plough-boy, a cutlerya blacksmith, a tur: er, a 
tailor, a printer, a brewer, a contractor-, an alderman, a superintendent of r il 
a lawyer, a prosecuting attorney, an aid to thegoverubr, — in short, almost everything 
but a Christian." He worked steadily as a blacksmith until nineteen, tkei 
'■■ • ' printing !iiee of his brother Simon at ilarrisburgh. From this he wandered into 
condufi ;;. Lycoming Gazette at Williarnsport. 

In* i '-T, he removed to Lancaster, and assumed the direction of the Polit-

November 1, Lieutenant-Genera] Scott resigned his command of the Union army, 
and BitfOiellan to< k his place. The same day Floyd was again defeat* 
at (.'"" !:iv Bridge.. Oa the 8th was fought the battle of Belmont, where our forces 
were compelled to retire to their boat-, before large re-enforcements of the n : .<:-. On 
the lofrh> Gwp.tain Wilkes brought Mason and Slidell to Nen Fork, having taken them 
from, a British steamer. At Mumiordviile, on Green River, Kentucky, on the 17th 
the rebels were defeated, with thirtyrthree killed and thirty-three wounded. On the 
18th General Pope surprised a. rebel camp, and took one thousand three hundr pris- 
oners, including three colonels and seventeen captains, and all their camp store 
equipage Dec< mbei 20 was fought the. battle of JJrainsville, where the rebels were 
again defeated with considerable loss. 

This closed the year of 1861. Rebellion was assuming creator proportions every 
day, and so, too, were the means for defence. The North hod but one will — the Union 
must be preserved. In that idea they did not falter. 


greatest losses sustained by Massachusetts in this war, is the death of 
■■ d S rede-rick William Lander of Salem, who waa wound d at Ball's 
died of n congestive fever aggravated by his wound, at Camp Chase, 
ie < r the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. 

i' of Captain Edward Lander, and was born at Salem, Dec. 17, 183! 
ositvon of civil engineer early in life. He was educated at the Dummei 
I'd, and completed his education as engineer at Partridge's Academy, 
characterized by a great fondness for field sports, ■manly'" exercise, biid 
: entered the service of the government some ten years "since, and was 
st active and energetic among those engaged in the exploration of the 
to the Pacific. He h id the command of an expedition in 1858, to open 
a wagon road to California' across the plains. He made five explorations across tbe 
continent, as engineer, chief engineer, or superintendent. He was superintendent of 
the last r:.;vv ; -^ for the great wagon road, and he did his work with such celerity and 
efficiency, that he was highly complimented by the Secretary of-th'i Interior in his 
ofh' :ial report. Of the appropriations made by Congress in two seasons alone for the 
construction of -these roads, lie brought back $100,000 of unexpended funds. He was 
one honest employe of the government; His experience in the>e explorations mad< 
his judgment extremely valuable in regard to the routes foT the Pacific Railroad, and 
Committees of both. Houses of Congress had frequent recourse to his knowledge and 
judgment. At one time he ergam?sed a party, at his own expense, and surveyed a 
t v>-.. from Washington Territory, through California, to the western part of Missouri. 
.1 s; some •■ .l.-os h ■ had to right the Indiai , and rout t hero, to save his li$e, and • i ■>■ e< d 
with h-ia enterprises-. In these expeditions he became acquainted with,. am the per- 
gonal friend di our comriia'n'dmg General, • McClellun. His pub Li tr services b >Ught bira 
ir cont ict with most of the great men of the time, a::d he was honored by all. 

On the breaking Out of the rebellion he orl'ered himself to his country. He was 
made brigadier-general of volunteers, hie served with great eiheiencj asaid to Gen- 
eral McCleMan, m Western Virginia. On the 2d of June, in the command oi t ; i<, 
9th Indiana and 14th Ohio Regiments, in conjunction with Co!. Kelly with another 
detachment, they m rched throUsh a fearful storm, attacked and shelled out the rebels 
at Phillippi. On the 1 1th -of July, at the battle of Ric! Mountain, "Col. Lander," 
the < Ificiai re pi rt said, ; - led the lenders into the right." Upon the earnest solicitation 
of General Mi-Clelian, Governor Spraguc, and Senator Carlisle, he was ma le a briga- 
dier-general, and assigned an iu.p riant station. During the disaster at Ball's Bluff he 
was at "Washington, arranging tor the opening: of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. 
As soon as he received intelligence of the action, he hastened to the spot, and on the 
22d was wounded in the leg by a musket ball, in the skirmish which he had with the 
iebels oppositi Edwards' Perry. He took the field, after his confinement, too early, 
and over exposure and excitement speedily dtveioped the disease that caused his 
death, which occurred March '2d, lS62f.

Thus spoke the great defender of the Constitution ; and what he his spok n ' ■ 
history. The loyal niillions of the North defend than Cons-titutl n, and that Uu ■ , 
with their arnis, that the great debater defended with his unapproach: I eh 
States m-trshal themselves in a column of defence, and Massachua Its ti : Lo lei

id< as; for these ideas she first led the attack upon the dogmas of priestcraft and king- 
craft, iv I ich had so long shut tne gates of mercy upon mankind ; first led the an.. ■'-:. 
Upon taxation without representation — and why should she not be the first to lea . the 
attack upon 'he treason of the Oligarchy? 

And what is this question with which Massachusetts has to deal ? It is a quo I 
between law and anarchy- — between democracy and a dictator — between the Got! 
the Roman. Massachusetts springs into the arena as one of .the great arbitei i, to sn •• 
the balance with the sword. When she strikes, it is not for the depression , but for thu 
exaltation of the human race. So site had always struck; and history is full of the 
erFectivenes-' of her blows. 

The Mayflower brought here the Ejerrn of the future state. The fruit has not ri| 
to belie the golden merit of the germ. Carver and Bradford, signing that sosial 
compact in the cabin of the. Mayflower, had no thought but that of justice, i 
equality, and the full development of the man. in an infant state, freed from the histor- 
ical memories and, feudal oppressions of England. They dreamed of a hew empire, 
and in Massachusetts have their children teen the fruition of that dream. 

Those honest men made religion the basis of their new state. In this we do i 
a blind faith, but an intelligent worship under the supremacy of law, subjected t > • 
ciph 3, and tl ese principles the edict of God, written on the pages of the Bible, of nature, 
Sifd n. the heart of man. They signed that compact with conseienli ■ - i ' < ■• 
* e'avei . against the assertions o;t ali cavillers, that conscientious motives, from I al 
d:iy to this n;v, tfefYfe be> n the' guiding spirit of the de'\irln frtieut of '■ ■- ■•'' 
s«-:ts State. What she .has believed "right, she has done ; what she has believed wrong, 
,m- has desisted i>um doing. Of her wisdom, at all times, we will not spea:k ; n ■ 
exalt the unvarying integrity of her purpose. Not a savage fell slain bj In r

of that aphorism, '* In peace prepare for war." 

The following resolves, contemplating the maintenance of the Union, were presented 
to the I egislature of Massachusetts, on the 18th of January, and free and fill debate 
.." • a •■'" ■' ••;•' i tin . They passed, however, with little or no d bate, an indication 
that not partisanship, but true loyalty to the Constitution and the Union, inspired I 
T'.c following cis the resolves : — 

" Resolves tendering the aid of the Commonwealth to the President of the United Statt >> 
i/i. enforcing the laws and preserving the Union. 

" Whereas, Several States of the Union have, through the action of their people am! 
authorities, assumed the attitude of rebellion against the national government; and 
tohere-is, treason is still more extensively diffused; and whereas, the Slate oi 5 
Caro ina, having first seized the post-office, custom house, mon :ys, arms, munitions of 
wi.r and fortifications of the fed- rai government, lias, bv firing upon a vessel in the ser- 
vice of the United Suites, committed an act of war; and whereas, the forts and property 
of the United States, in Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida, have been -.•'- . 
with hostile and treasonable intention; and whereas, senators and representatives in 
C n\ res avow and sanction these acts of treason and rebellion : therefore, 

■• U&sott&d, Ir.;: t 1 .- Legislature of Massachusetts, now, as abv^vs, < nvinced of th< 
inestrTrt4bfe value of the Union, and the necessity of preserving its blessings to our- 
Reive* and pyr posterity, regard with unmingled satisfaction the determination evinced 
iii the recent firm and pati iotic special mes ;age of the President of the United State: , 
to amply and faithfully discharge his constitutional duty of enforcing the laws ai d ; re- 
bpi vina; the integrity of the Union ; and we proffer to him, through the Governor of the 
Commonwealth, such aid in men and money as he may require, to maintain the autl r- 
ity of the national government. 

" Eesaheil, That the Union-loving and patriotic authorities, representatives, and 
citizens of those State? wh< se loyally is endangered or assailed by internal or external 
treason, who labor in behalf of the Federal Union with unflinching courage and pat- 
riotic devotion, will receive the enduring gratitude of the American people. 

••• Resolved, That the Governor be requested to forward, forthwith, co] ies of the fore- 
going resolutions to the President of the United States, and the Governors of the several 
St ites. [Approved January 23, lSdL" 

This was the first ieuisi^tivr* action that was taken, in contemplation of such an issue 
as a great rebellion io the South. In these resolves the position of the State was defined. 
She was found to be true to the heritage of her fathers. Sue took a stand for law, and 
to maintain that Union inviolate that was threatened bj tri as >n, and under whose pro- 
tect in ■: r.ris she had so long prospered in wealth, power, and peace. From that position 
sh ! v.-i:l never recede. 

i ; St ite of Virgin;} issued a call to the other States, to meet her in convention, to 
?-<" > v h;-. measures of y pe ee at^'emieilTatien could be suggesttrtk b7on«re«vs pas ?d ■■ i 
promulgated a call in sympathy with that wish. The matter came up for consideration 
bef •; c the Legisl tture of Massachusetts, and the project was opposed as extra constitu- 
ti »nal. There were those found who did not favor the convention. Others, a 
argued that New York, I iUnei , Ohio, and Rhode Island, which State s wauld be repre- 
sented, might, in that convention, make a new basis for a constitution, in derogation of 
th.- rights of Congress, and that the States absent might be considered as consenting by 
their silence. Others thought that Massachusetts already had her delegation in Con- 
gress, and that this was a sufficient representation upon all national questions. The 
ques.ti .it of sendii g d« u j c 'c-- to this convention was finally consi Iered on the 4:h day 
of February. A call had been issued, signed by several of the most influential citizens 
of Boston and vicinity, for a meeting in Faneuil Hall the afternoon of the 4th. They 
s iw arid felt the necessity of on outward compli nee, at least, with the .-ill of Virgil i i, 
in order that Massachusetts should stand right on the record. Virginia alleged that 
she spoke in the spirit of peace.; we could do uo less than meet her in the same spiiit. 
This was the feeling or" thv majority of the people. But those taking an ultra position 
upon the question of slavery opposed the appointing of the commissioners, ard strenu- 
oussl) urgtd that opposition. They did not believe in the honesty of Virginia; .they 
saw in hr=r movement an atumpt to coerce the North, by threats of dissolution of the 
U iii; h", into extendiug further guaranties upon. the question of slavery. Others n pin i 
that i ■ ■■ owi d litiie to courtesy, but much to the historical spirit of Massachusetts, and 
the) id not think that she would ' r ^ degraded by meeting Virginia uj i lier'own 
gr< ■ • I. 1'he discussion was warm iu both u i s of the Legislature. The spirit cf 
CCn« iliaf ion prevailed, and the resolve passed the Senate. 

" Resolve for the appointment of Commissioners to attend a Convention to be held in the 

Cay of Washington. 
" Wheieat, The Coaimonwralth. of Massachusetts is desirous of a full and free confer- 
ence with the general government, and with any or all of the other States of the L'ni n 


at any time and on every occasion when such conference may promote the welfare cf 
the com!. try ; and 

" Whereas, Questions of grave moment have arisen touchins the po^ i r i of the govern- 
ment, an4 the relations between the diti'ei at States o( the 1 i 

'< whereas, The State of Virginia has expressed a desire to meet her sister S 
convention- at Washington; therefore, 

' Itesoive-dj That the Governor of this Commonwealth, by and with the advici and 
sent of the Council, bo and he hereby is authorized to appoint seven persons as i immH- 
lioners, to proceed to Washington to confer with the gone;; il government, or i 
separate States, or with any association of delegates from such States, and to teport 
their doings to the legislature at its present session; it being expressl) d 
their acts shall be at all times underthe control and subject to the approval orrej 
of the Legislature. [Approved February 5, 1861." 

The resolve was immediately approved by the Governor, and the following cm 
sioners were appointed : — John 1}. Goodrich, of Stockbridge; Charles Allen, ?<< Wor- 
cester; George S. Boutwell, of Groton ; Francis B. Crowninshield, of Boston ; Th 
lus P. Chandler, of Brookline ; John M. Forbes, of Milton; and Richard 13. V. . 
of Beverly. 

These gentlemen "Were distinguished for their integrity and genera] ability; and ir: 
them the State felt thather principles von 1 :! be faithfully represented. Tins convention, 
on February 27th, submitted to Congress its plan of pacification ; but this plan failed to 
pacificate those who would not he pacified — those who were pledged to disunion and to 
war. Massachusetts, at least, had attempted conciliation. 

On the 3d of April, 1801, the Legislature passed another resolve, authorizin ; I 
Acjiitant-Cc;: j.ii to equip 2000 soldiers for active service. This resolution 
considerable ridicule from the opposition press ; still, when the emergency cam 
wisdom of the movement turned the ridicule to the other side. The following is a copy 
of the resQ,W.e : 

iS Resolve relating to the Equip/Kent of Troops for Active Service. 

" Resolved, That the adjutant and acting quartermaster-general be, and he is hereby 
authorized, under the direction of the governor and council, to provide, either b; 
tract or otherwise, a sufficient number of overcoats, blanket?, knapsacks, hav< . 
and other articles of equipment, camp utensils, and trenching tools, as may be i 
to equip two thousand, troops for active service, and a sum not exceedine twei 
thousand dollars is hereby appropriated for that purpose. [Approved April 3, 1881." 

The Governor's Message to the Special Session ; May 14, 1S01. 
The Governor, in April, immediately after the fall of Sumter, issued a proclamati 
calling together the members of the Legislature, to meet, in their several ch irnc srs at 
noon of the 14-th day of May. They met at the appointed time, in extra session. After 
convening, a joint committee from the two houses waited upon the Governor, and 
informed him that they were ready to listen to any communication that he had to make 
to them. The Governor mot them, and in his characteristic style addressed then; upon 
the momentous issues of the hour. 

[ixmst, the occasion demands action, and not spe^fh. A grand era has 
noshing is perceived to discourage the American people. The fed ■■■ 
mp>eBed to assert its rightful authority by an appeal to the stout he iri . 
if loyal men. Massachusetts, by the unanimi is celaitn oi her t 
epartments of her public service with a perfect devotion to the cause i I 
and it now remains only for the Legislature to carry out more perfeel 
leople: This is no war of sections, no war of North on South ; n 
!r wrongs, nor to perpetuate ancient griefs. It is the struggle • 
their own rights, to retain and invigorate the institutions of thcii : tthers. 
The guns pointed at Sumter announced to Major Anderson and his men their introduc- 
tion into the noble army of heroes of American history. 

TheProclamation of 'the President summoning the rebels to disperse, and the rally of 
the troops in Massachusetts, under all its circumstances of c brity of uaOition ai I '.:-.!- 
liancy of results, is unexampled. The telegraphic message from W ishington coi 
him that no small dependence was placed upon Massachusetts to be early in the fiel t. 
and no delay was permitted, for by 9 o'clock on the Sabbath morning followii ; the 
Monday on which the first telegram was received, the whole number of regiments de- 
manded from Massachusetts were already either in Washington, in Fortress Monroe, 
or on their nay to the defence of the capital. 

The war expenditures were unhesitatingly incurred. The Executive and his council 
understood and relied upon the temper of the. people and the support of the Legisla- 
ture. Not only had they supplied present, but had also anticipated coming wants in 
providing for military stores, elbthing, equipments. All agents and departments of 
the :.• i rice h id wmght economy no less than brilliancy and effectiveness in the sphere 

The disbursements in the military service, up to May 13th, were, lor subsisi 
$40,222 24; cloth ihir, $4)0,823 22; equipments, gSO.oGo 7 s ; transportation of i r

Europe. The contracts in progress contemplated uniforms, &c. for new na m. Nearly 
all these contracts and expenditures constituted a valid claim upon the federal govern- 

yhe Governor highly complimented private gentlemen, his military aid*, and 
cialty - the- council, which had been in session daily for the month previous. He •■■ 
complimented the Quarter-JH ister General, who had rendered efficient service after his 
appointment to a new office, created for the occasion, under the constiti tiou and I .-.- 
general statutes, so to relieve the Adjutant-General of a portion of his rt-.r >ii ubiHtn ■>. 
He recommended that an appropriation be made to cover exp m i s incurrci . 
that might be made. On the 27th of April, he had commissioned and sent a citizen of 
Massachusetts to Europe to purchase the Minnie rir!e, or other efficient amis as co ild 
be procured- for this purpose he had been furnished with a letter of credit to t:ic 
amount of £50,OOQi The nautical school ship had al o bei d Itted up, and present d 
by the collector of the port, with an aid to the revenue, wiih instruction to overhaul 
suspicious-looking vessels. A sense of insecurity along the coast, and the pi 
demonstrations of Davis, induced them to purchase part of the steamers Cai 
and Pembroke fordefence and transportation; the Cambridge, especially, had perform< d 
brilliant service in conveying troops to 1'ortress Monroe, and up the Potomac to Wash- 

The nest subject that engaged his attention was that of a State encampment. There 
were 129 newiy enlisted companies in the active militia, induced to enlist by the pr< j- 
pect of being called immediately into the held. That these men might p< i IV d 
selves in their profession, so as to be of substantial service to the State, and that oih r 
citizens might be left to pursue, undisturbed, their various avoeations in private life, 
and that the future might he efficiently provided against, and alsn in an-.wei to the 
earnest solicitation of several citizens, he recommended the establishment of a State 
encampment; He made aiso several minor. .suggestions concerning the conduct of such 
an encampment, and gave the whole into the hands of the Legislature. 

lie also diseotir iged the practice of the towns in giving aid to the soldiers and com • 
fiiea funning in them. It not only became a desultory and inefficient method of ren- 
dering assistance, but also incapacitated the towns for rendering assistance to the 
families of the soldiers while they -were away. The State was the proj er authority to 
render any assistance necessary in forming the companies. He recommended the 
enrolling of the entire militia; also a popular loan to be effected by instalments as 
might be deemed expedient by the executive department,; and the people of the State 
were exhorted to economy ro provide ag tinst the necessitie ; of the future. 

In this address the Governor showed shrewdness and foresight in the various recom- 
mendations, and they generally met with the. approval of the Legislature and the 

Extra Session, May, 1862, 

The Governor and Council, in prosecuting the preparations of the State to meet any 
emergency of war, made full use of the executive power in their hands. The necessities 
of the times, in their judgment, justified the use of that power. They relied fully 
upon the generosity and patriotism of the people to sustain them by anj leg la ive

The foregoing is the substance of the legislative action at the extra session, up 
momentous issue of the hour. For once in the history of Massachusetts legislation, 
party spirit and party lines were laid aside. Men forgot their variances and mere party 
interests in the great and common danger. The sound of the cannon of Sumte» 
aroused all the nobler passions of their natures, and legislators thought of n d 
legislated for their country. The necessity for action was not questioned. They 
dxd not ask. shall we have a war? shall wt assist this domestic contest: is the safety 

enough that the On foil Was threaten cci., that is worth, ail of life, and < f ■•' . ...

ernor and the Legislature knew that they could rely upon th firm support ( ' t!

that the greatest sufferings of nations had be n . ■■• by internal 
and it was our duty to profit by their example. Here we have a free press, reli^iom 
toleration for all, education il advantages withoul a p iralld in I I] : W oi Id, am 
government : an ', if th-se failed, there would be no more an a<y)um for fJv opp 
of Europe. Andrew Jackson and Richard Montgomery, with Irish blood ii I

Ireland held an inheritance, which was sacred to them, and to the children of the Pil- 
grims. Though Democrats, in their resolutions they cond ! tl lati Pi ident for 
his ii;.ier.inu, and all the acts of those trait ■. . i. ■ . .d bei n Ion > it w u '■ for the disrup

into imbecility : and row was (he time to tea >h such traitors th it the Union wa s 
Me of the virtue of self-perservaiiori, and of the virtue of U fence, \ hen forbearance 
was no longer a virtue. They I'd: ved it the duty of every adopted citizen of 
birfh or parentage, who enjoyed the inestimable privileges of ouv free government, to 
cast aside all past distinction?, and unite as one man for the support of the national 
administration. They called upon al< of Irish birth to stan 1 true to the i oumry whfuh 
had become the home of so man) million;? of their race, and of the oppressed | l<

This was the feeling of Ireland in America, fth • came here to find liberty, law, I

Bank Action, 

The State must have means; it-must have money; and no sooner had the sound of 
the guns of Sumter reached the merchants and brokers < f Huston, than they felt that 
they had been attacked in their pockets, in their bank-vaults, iu their granite ware- 
houses, in their mercantile career and prosperity. I hey replied in cohtmbiads ofgi I J, 
which sunt their hewy shot and calibre -into th < ry'fe art of rebellion, a: 1 n 
tremble. On the 17th of April the Directors of the Suffolk Bank held a meeting and 
voted an advance to the Governor of the Commonwealth — a loan of $100,000 — to be 
used in the present emergency, and subject to the future approval of t!ie Legislature. 
They also voted to take the treasury notes of the Secretary of the Treasury of the 
United States, at 6 per cent., to the amount of s' 100,000; 'at par. These gentlemen 
knew what peace was worth, what law was worth, and they intended to pay for it. 
The Webster Bank also upon the same day voted a loan of $50,000 to the State. 

Tins was not sufficient; a call was issued to the managers of the i" : iston bank-, and 
a meeting was feeld in answer to that call, at tiie ( bearing, on the ISth of April, 
with!) aiel Dewey, President of the" Hamilton Bank, in the chair. The object of the 
mi etii i wa ■ stated to be tender of money to the State Gsa^emmeat as the ; ■■ he 
exigencies may require. A resolution »vas ".. - : iarelj presented that the banks of

might be demanded by the pounnbnweaith. Lney deemed that the quickest way to 
suppress this rebellion was to assure the government of the hearty support of "the 
monied interest. This resolution, after an opportunity for the expression of such 
patriot; 1 sentiments ;>s tire members entertained, passed uiua imousli/. This placed 
nearly the sum of £4,000,000 at the disposal of the State. The following is a list. of

This patriotism of the banks was nut monopolized by those of Boston, Then w 
other virtue in Massachusetts. Among those reported as tendering loans to th • 
at the same time, was the Randolph Bank, £S2o,000; the Massasoit Bank, of Fall 
River. 830,000 j Columbian Bank, $-50,000 ; Revere Bank, $'50,000; Mount Wo] 
Bank, '$25,000 ; and the banks of Worcester, $300,000. $850,000 had been tendered 
to the St.ite, for meeting the exigencies of war, almost before the President's pr< 
tiun hud been read by the people; and this, .too, exclusive of the amount tendered 
the Boston Association of Banks. In addition to these, the Lynn Mechanics' •'■ nk 
voted $'"25,000; the Bunker Hill Bunk, Charlestown, $30,030; the Newton I 
$25,000; and the New England Mutual Life Insurance Company unanimously voted . 
loan of $100,000 to the State. 

And so the capital flowed into the hands of the authorities from all parts of the 
State. The Western counties wore not behind in their substantial testimonials 
patd .-ism and Mbtre-y was not a want of the authorities. Ir.t cnterpri?e 
and thrift of the Suu; had not laid up its store in vain; the day of tidal came, an . ." 

The Boston Board of Trade. 
On the 15th, the "Boston Board of Trade met at the Merchants' Exchange, to express 
th< ir sentiments upon the crisis. In their opinion, in the present crisis of the nation .1 
afTiirs. all Lroed citizens and alt associations, especially those connected with com uer- 
cial affairs, should let their views be known to the government in some public u 
As members of the Board of Trade in the City of Boston, individually and coll* 
they tendered the government of the United States their entire syrnpathj in toe 
measures' now bei ns; taken far the suppression of the rebellion, and they also i 
mended the most vigorous and effective "means to restore authority where the sUi lard 
of revolt had been raised. They looked upon, the recent proclamation of JeH - 
Davis, inviting persons to fit cut vessels to cruise against the peaceful commerce of the 
citizens of the United States, as inviting to piracy, and meriting the stern rebuke of 
every honest man, and invited the government to protect commerce by most vi» 
means. They believed that the prompt response of the citizen soldiers of this ai 
other States, and the patriotic action of the banks, merit the thanks of the whole 
country, and showed that the community had entire confidence' in the ability and^ power 
l.\ both the State and national governments. Those views were unanimously ad ; ft !. 
The merchants .!>?' Boston were found where honor and justice commended the cause. 

Nineteenth of April in Boston. 
The J9th of April, l c o! , will not s >on.he f r aiei . El ha - be* ome one of the sacred 
days of American history, wie may say of the history ol liberty, and of the race. It celebrated hero us the anniversary of the memorable battle of Lexington, by 
salutes, the display of flags, ringing of bells, and speeches, There was a dull up. .a 
the CwB^fton of one of the light artillery -companies ; and, a* 12 o'clock, iOfl gui 
Hr« 1 as a s .into. 'I hey subsequently were received by speeches, &c., at the Statt [louse, 
Uoax the Governor. At Lexington' appropriate recognition was made of the day. At 



Worcester there was a celebrat Ion by the ledication services of the raising of a 

toent to Col. Timothy 13:2<.'!ow, l t-hieb the city government, thi fire corifpanies, the 

temperance societies, and the German Turners assisted, with a ! lurse of 

:;:L ns. 

lint the great featuro rtf the day was the reception of the news if attack upon 
' 6th Ke&wient in 'Baltimore, and its successful p ; i -. ' . • The news 

came of the attack, and men gai ered thi k in the streets, devoui ig th< bulletin 
boards with their eye-;. '1'he crowds grew esoited, linen • t. i h y felt that 

they all stood at the door of battle in this attack uj on tl brotl »ho h id li ft them 
but a few hours before. Men hi* their lips in their an • ■<. an 1 set thi srether, 

and showed front which would have been terror to Baltimore. The news came that 
the glorious 6*h had fought their waj through, .vben tin ihc t ol exultation ran along 
the street which told that Massachusetts honored Massachusetts steel. It v 
first blood shed, the first victory, and she had tin honor, as in the first Itevo 
The stars and stripes never looked more gl irious than on that ni jht, in the c res of the 
sons of the Old Bay State. 

The Coast Guard. 
At the recommendation of Hon. R B, Forbes, the merchants met in the Men 
Exchange, on'April 19th, to see to the organization of a coast defence. Mr. Forbes 
stated that thej feared no danger of an invasion of the harbor, but that the object war, 
to drill a class of men, not acquainted with the military, in the use of large guns. He 
did not &now how soon their services might be wanted in the navy, orsome scientific 
defence of our- merchant Vessels from the lawless invaders of the seas. The Governor, 
too, had been consulted, and he sympathized .-deeply vat] > ; i project; and so, also, did 
the .'(■ >ard of Tra 3e. Gentiemei testified their wiUtngnes- to enter into t: ■ project, 
and their judgment as ru its efficiency, ivy the amount thai thej snbseribed. "Mr. 
Fbibes would give his time in getting tip the enterprise, and accept a subordinate 
position among the pfrkers, Messrs. -Lombard, Snow and Upton then sub bribed $ ■ ■' 
each. In their resolutions passed upon the occasion, they viewed the present crisis 
with overwhelming anxiety, and believed that the merchants and seamen of Massachu- 
setts should respond heartily to the proposed plan of Mr, Forbes. This was but one to shoWhow the " solid men of Boston" looked upon the war of the 
South upon the Union. 

April 22d m BostGB ancl Vicinity. 
On the 22d of April, a large meeting of the ladies was held in Charlestown, to he 
called " The Soldiers' Relief Society," and to hold communication with the families of 
the soldier*, and tender them sympathy;; counsel and aid. Tl - wife of Mayor 
Hutchins was president, and other's were -chosen to complete the organization, com- 
prising names honorable in the re-c< rds of the city. The Mayor tl ion state 1 that the 
city government had appropriated £,■ 10,009 for the relief of the families of volunteers, 
and ex-Mayor Sawyer stated that he had received a check from a citizen for the same 
purpose, on the Bunker Hill Ban 1 .:, and also a note ivas read staling that ten physicians 
of the city had offered to attend to the families of volunteers, free of charge, during 
tb ir al ence. 

The City of Boston, on the 22d, also trok other setion than c,ffi ring of money. Th< 
Board if. Aldermen passed a scries of resolutions pledging tj.e m< tl d mater d sup- 
I ". •■ <■:' •':)>■ < 'it j 'if Boston, with ail its' p wer ' a! iity, to the Government of the

of t' rston foi an oblivion of party diiierenci -, nd a- of all g od i ti ens in 

\i dicaiion of the violated laws. They said that the revolted States st< I before the 
eneeless and convicted of an assault . m the common polity of

compacts and compromises of the Constitution; and. at the same 
irgedupon the President to pursue ■■■..■' a t< ustiiutional policy as

The presidents of the various insurance companies met in State street, to coi

The United States Steam-Frigate Niagara heaved its great h utl in i i i h 
this day, and absurd rumors were, in circulation that the officers and men sy pa! 
with secession, and that she was to be turned over to the rebels. Th< o 
giance was administered anew to. both officers and men. Several of the 
sworn, hailing from Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, and : . 
were found ti serve Mammon. 

Roxbury followed upon her patriotic resolutions, by a meeting to organize a . 
guard (not one of the guards " not to leave town, s^ve in ease of invasion "). 

An adjourned meeting of the British residents of Boston and vicinity was held at 
'Chapman Hall, in the evening, when they decided to form a rifle company t h me 
protection. So also the Scotchmen of Boston, animated by the same spirit, met and 
commenced the organization of a volunteer company. 

The New England Guards, seeing the exposed condition of our harbor, and th< fort

April 25th came in hip: with preparation for war. The people were up a i I w i 
The number of officers in the Niagara appeared to-day to be twelve, insl id 
who declined to take the oath of allegiance. They were all from Southern E 
Lieut. Brown; of the Niagara, was, by order Of the Governor, arrested for utu "- 

sonable sentiments, and for supposed treasonable proclivities; but subsec] ml) i 
discharged, and permitted to depart. The Navy Yard, yesterday, was aro nl . 

to put everything in the yard, that could be made available, in readiness for sea. This 
required labor on the Mississippi, Minnesota, Colorado, the Massachusetts ami Soi th 
Carolina, the Vincennes, Preble and Bainbridge. This required a great addition to the 
labor force of the yard. 

Among the military items of the day, a messenger left for Washington to :■.■: 
consent for Major Gordon to raise a regiment to serve through the war. Twe-ntj 
companies had already. been accepted.- hy the* (Governor; and i fim i '•■'■'•; of 61

April 26th; 

The towns were no less alive and stirring than the great cities. Patriot] m i n ■ 
local; it warms hearts in the mountain-, and the vales, as well as those dun] 
within brick walls. A large and enthusiastic meeting of the citis ns of '.'■ llisl 
reported, where $2,500 was subscribed, and 86 names obtained for a company of vol- 
unteers. It was also voted, at this meeting, to instruct the town, at a town mi 
to raise sufficient money to support the families of the volunteers while they rc re 
absent. In Haverhill a new company had been formed, and attached to the Si 
Regiment. On the evening of the 20th, the citizens of Chelsea aa3e.mbled around the 
City Hall to testify their fealty to the government by unfurling a beautiful' fla 
the top of the building, which was the gift of the lathe's of the city. Aft< c the ii 
lion of a blessing upon that trig and the dear country, the childrer welcomed it by the 
Star Spangled Bannerin hearty music. It appeared that Wate .. I held a town 
meeting, the largest ever known there, and resolutions had been adopted, unanimously, 
declaring that the town pledge itself to adopt the families of those who had > 
i'ur the war, and of those who might join the company. $5,000 were appropriated for 
this purpose, arid a bounty of $30 to each .'soldier *- hoae corupan.y was accept d by I • 
government within 30 days. A. private subscription was started foi the purpo 
equipping town volunteers, and $1,600 was raised. In the f own of Westboro' a loyal 
meeting was held; 50 names were added to the volunteer list, among which were a 
physician and the Methodist clergyman. £5,000 were appropriated, to be expendei in 
the purchase of uniforms furnishing cruia yi\ xc t.'.o en ■■.)■■:.■.:■•■, ■„•.'. \ f ■ r h<.' r mv vt "'" 
the families of the needy. Voluntary contributions w :re also pledged to the amount of 
.$'3,000. Not only large, but small towns, came up to the order. 

On the evening of April 23, a large meeting was held at Lynnfield Centre, when 
addresses were made,- and resolutions unanimously passed, to make all needful provi- 
sion for the soldiers and their families. Among those who joined for the war were the 
chorister, sexton, and bell-ringer of the Congregational Church. The most noticeable 
call of this day was that made by the citizens of Cambridge and vicinity for a meeting 
to he held under the venerable ehi on Cambridge Common, where Wasl : 
unsheathed his sword in taking command of the American Army. The call was si 
by Jared Sparks, the professors of the univefrsity, and (.he most distinguished ct1 ;

show power under her time-honored elm. 

Chester Park, Cambridge, and. Suffolk Bar Meetings. 
On the 27th, Chester Park threw out a flag to the breeze, when the Hon. Edward 
Everett, Hon. B. F. Halls tt, and Rev, Mr. flepworth, and others, took part on the

fidelity to the country. 

Ob the same day. the. citizens of Cambridge and vicinity held the, meeting called 
under the venerable elm on the Common in that city, where Washington unsheathed 
his sword on taking command of the American Army. Ex-presidents and members of 
the university were in attendance. Sparks, Longfellow, Palfrey, Dana, and Parker 
wee present," — so also was ex-Governor Banks, and others equally prominent. Hon. 
John G. Palfrey offered resolutions, in which they said that tht y conse< rated them-.; l\ 
to the service of freedom and the country, under the Washington Elm; that they, 
citizens of Middlesex, the first battle-field of the American lti Solution, cherished the 
memory of their re ■rolutionary champions end martyrs; that, living under their pros- 
perity, under the benign shadow Of charity and love, they would be dastards and 
recreants if they did not stand firmly by trie government. The meeting was charac-

The members of the Bat in Boston could not be silent, according to their usual 
custom. A large attendance was present, and all seemed actuated by the same spirit that 
animated Otis, Quincy, Adams and Payne in other revolutionary tii i ?s. Judge Thomas, 
of the Supreme Judicial* Court, was chosen chairman, and made a close, nervous, 
log-re«l and able -sp< eh upon the occasion. In speaking for theUeo h, he saidtl

Fifat Division of M. V.M., to take command of Forts Warren and h dependence in 
Boston Harbor, and take immediate measures to have them placed in < 
receive such new organizations as it might be deemed proper to place the:.' 
and discipline. The companies organized to form wb it wa ■ . Ued the " \\ 
Eegiraent " were ordered to quarters immediately in Fort \\ arren. 

.As another indication of the alacrity with which men iiocked to the standard of 
then country, we mention the fact that the board of military examiners at the State 
House were busily employed everyday in examining persons elected to 
various military companies of volunteers, to ascertain their fitness to hold con i i 
A<nd an idea of the number may be formed when we state that moi

designate physicians to examine tin.' volunteers, purchase medical stores, and attend 
otherwise to the general health of the volunteers. 

Ex-Governor Washburn, of the Cambridge Law School, sent one hundred flannel shirts 
and drawer-;, one hundred pocket-handkerchiefs, with the promise of a 1 tred 
pital shirts, Which were fitted and made by the ladies of Cambridge ; and. the Governor 
handsomely acknowledged the note by saying that " in glancing ovei tl ir a

the next letter opened was from a poor needle-woman, who had but little, but was 
desirous to give something of that little for her country. 

May 1st, the remains of the three brave men who perished in the streets of Balti- 
more, as the first sacrifice of the war, arrived in the city at the Worcester .'Depot. 
They were received b.y the Governor, his aids, and the Independent Cor; 
and escorted to King's Chapel, where they were temporarily placed in th ■ ult, 
remain until recognition. As soon as the news of their arrival came, many of ti 
stores and Sags along the streets where they were expected to pass, wen 
mourning. The bodies were placed in hearses, and then covered with black velvet 
the stars and snipes. The horses wore black plumes The Cadets marched witb 
unfixed bayonets and reversed arms, and the hand played the slow music of the Dead 
March in Saul, as the procession moved through the streets. There w ls no levity ir 
the thousands who thronged to witness the scene. Each man took it home to himself. 
As the bodies-passed, all hats were removed; men did not speak to each other on th 
walk; they were silent, but felt war, — terrible war. That silence was ominous. It 
told where' slept a power for retribution, if need be, upon the authors of our m 
tunc. The bodies of those slain were identified as those of Addison O. Whitney, and 
Luther C. Ladd of Lowell, and Sumner EL Needham of Lawrence. These were the 
first-fruits o l i fame plucked from the rebellion.

prayer and speech, cave moral irapressiveness and dignity to the occasion. Amid such 
scenes as the above, were the first lessons of the war given out.

at his home in Lawrence, Lawrence was proud of the honor which had falh . to her, 
and in this last observance of burial rites, she nobly and appropriately honored the dead. 
The city government took charge of the body, and buried it with military honors. The 
pastor preached a fine and characteristic sermon from the text, " He, being dead, yet 
speak; th." He stated one thing noticeable for its philosophic force — "Humanity is 
the central idea of Republicanism ; " ami so it .should ever be, if we would honor ibly 
maintain our peculiarly American li jenies. 

Among the towns reported May 4 as having given assistance, Maiden voted $3,000 
at one time, and at another $10,000, for the assistance of the families of volunteers.

coutiiied to Boston alone. The country towns were active to the full measure of theii 

The love of the country penetrated through foreign birth and prison walls, so that 
an educated German, in the Charlestowh State's Prison, said, after stating tl it he had 
been in nil the hard-fought battles between Vera Cruz and Mexico, that " his heart's 
desire was t:> serve n:s adopted country once more." The inmates of theState's Piison 
were set to work manufacturing Minie ride balls, tin dippers and canteens, crush towels 
and uniforms. En completing large portions of the work\ the inmates were compelled 
to labor all night, but it was done by them with the most cheerful alacrity. They felt, 
though in prison under the laws, that those laws should be sustained for the benefit, of 
the country. 

Sunday at Fort Warren. 

The soldiers had collected in considerable numbers in Fort Warren. On May 5th, 
the Sabbath, for the first time, divine services were held in the open air. With, the 
implements and paraphernalia of war around, they became peculiarly impressive. Au 
eloquent and appropriate sermon was preached by the Rev. Mr. Flepworth, to a large 
and distinguished crowd of spectators, and to the soldiers of the Webstet Regiment, 
and the Fourth Battalion drawn up in parade. After the clergyman concluded his 
remarks, he requested the audience to sing ''America; " and the nolle and patriotic 
old tunc- never before seemed so sweet and voluble of music. After the benediction, 
there was a cress parade. The quietness of the scene and the deportment of the com- 
pany was such as to make the occasion entirely in keeping with the day. 

The Nurses, 
To show that the ladies of Massachusetts were not to be outdone in kindly and 
useful offices of humanity, a hearty and full response was made to the call from the 
Medical Commission from the State House for nurses. This Commission communi- 
ted to the public 3 document from Secretary Cameron, accepting the services of Miss 
ttharizing her to act in the military hospitals. Miss Dix req

The city was appropriately dressed in mourning, — business was

The Donation Committee, 
This is one of the institutions. of the city, — benevolent, useful, energetic, and skil- 
ful; it has work to do, and docs it. The soul of this committee i its origin tor and 
agent, the indefatigable Mrs, Harrison Gray Otis. Immediately after the breaking oi 
of the war, she set about to see .what her hands could find to do: and if occuri 
her that she could best assist the Old Bay State in the cause in which it had ei I 
by throwing open her own house, and making it a general depoi for re 
distributing conveniences and necessaries to the soldier: of Massacbusetts. This . 
became known to the city government, and Mr. Evans, the proprietor of the Evans 
House on Tr«asont Street, jopened his. Jhoust ^ratuiteaxsh . this purpose. As so 
Mr. Evans signified lis intention to give Mrs. Otis his house for this pu 
entered it, about the last of April, and has been there everyday since — not h 
holiday,,Qr day of rest, save the Sabbath. She receives ay.-,: 1 );.' and everything fot 
the soldiers, — shirts, drawers, socks, sleeping-caps, blankets, pin-cn hions, towels, 
groceries, teas, coffee, sugar, wines, &c. Articles are sent to her from all ] 
State, made and unmade, and by her distributed, to her order only, to all th< >1 !iei 
v, ho apply. They come in from the camps and get complete outfits. Ontheii return 
from the* seat of war, on furlough, they call, and give most hearty thanks for the 
things they have had to supply theii necessities, and receive such thi r- i m •" as they 
quire. Every article is marked, no matter what, with the mark of th 
as follows : — " Donation. Committee-,. Mrs. Harrison Gray Otis, Agent, Cil 
; " so that any soldier can te 11 whence comes his donation. Jt is impossible to

One Hundred mot, - adoptedthc following rub 
d who met on the 27th, to correct any public mis 
of this fund, published tbe following in the 



p.ipiw:— "Our object is, «td receive contribution forth liera, and the

Tbe endeavor to provide means for (he fui re, cannot, w< thin , bu 1 be approved by 
every thoughtful person. The exigencies of war are almost tnnumei I, while 

towns, cities, and neighborhoods meet the immedi ities of those, and the 

families of those, who are called to the field in this hour of our 'a awful 

emergency, we feel disposed to commend the wisdom of the gentlemen who look 
beyond present needs, and who, hy the creation and care of this fund, hold out to the 
war-worn and the afflicted the promise of such pecuniary remembrance hereafter as 
the extent of the contributions Will allow. That the 'Mas achusetls Si Idiers' 1 
is in the hands of citizens who are known for their integrity, financi il skill, and deeds 
of benevolence, our readers need no assurance of ours. We m t at, while the 

Executive Committee, as we are advised, decline to commit themselves to any coarse 
of action, as relates to the time of beginning to disburse th< i i ■ y pi iced at their 
disposal, as well as decline to define — whal indeed is not possible now to do- 
rules which may be adopted in appropriating the funds, yet they do iutend to \ ■ 
to every passing event, and to take cognizance of such calls as shall be made from 
time to" time, keeping steadily in view, however, the final amount oi the fund, and tht 
principles of organization of the Committee of One Hundred. 

"It is also of moment to observe, that, since cotitributii rts have been solicited in all 
parts of our glorious old Commonwealth, so will distributions of the fi adi b : lade as 
universally by the Executive Committee; for, It is to h remen beri that, in i 
tuttng this body, Boston has but six members, while other and different parts of the 
State have nine. Upon this point, we would speak with distinct emphasis ;— for 
example, Boston — as hound to do — will doubtless contribute more than any other 
single place, but will still share in exact proportion only to tbe eases presented and 
disposed of under the rules recognized everywhere else, however near to or distant 
from that city. The town:- and cities, then, nut n m doing to the e; tent of their ability 
in fitting oil soldiers and caring for the wives and children of soldiers, may re.->t 
entirely content, that, if they do but transmit money to Robert ~M. BlASONj.the 
Treasurer, at Boston (No. 17 Milk Street, or 10 Pernberton Square), they will provide 
for the future wants of the present objects oj duty and sympathy > in the precise 
& rise of contributors >n the metropolis itself. We have purposely made no appeal to our 
citizens to aid this fund, because we deemed a single word on that subject quite 
unnecessary. So, too, we have refrained from dwelling upon the startling . 
of the hour, for the reason, that, as remarked at the outset, we designed merely to 
correct existing, and, as circumstances induce us to believe, somewhat extensive 
misapprehensions as to the objects of the fund." 

December 9th, a circular announced that a sub-committee had then addressed 
circulars to the various banks and savings institutions of the Commonwealth, to know 
if they would receive and disburse, without charge, such funds as might be sent to 
thera by the soldiers. Most, or ail, replied tha! the] w mid.

which decimated the Crimean army. Its duties are partly preie/Uivt — such as in-

bad cooking are worse foes to the soldier than those met in battle. It makes good, in

Ladies' Industrial Aid Association. 
This association was organized early upon the breaking ■ ! of :' war, by the la- 
dies of boston. In .July it was re-organized, with Mrs. C. II. Lowell for Prt 
Mi.-s Anna Lowell, Vice-President, and v lib ?-a board '.'■; thirtec directors. Th< i 
of this association is to furnish work-— the making of sold i-' shirts— • wives 

of the soldiers in the field who need assistance. They stand between the conti 
and the women ; take the garments from the contractors to cut and make, r • 
a certain sum for making, and paying a certain sum to the p >edlewomen for the -• ■ 
ing. The association has succeeded beyond expectation. 

To obtain an idea of what they have accomplished, we gave the figures: From July 
6th, 1861, to January 1st, 1862, they received, in donations, in sums vary hie fi 
cents to five hundred dollars, $3,229. 28 ; for shirts gratuitously rhade, '$300; ami for 
work, done by the needlewomen (paid for}, -S'o,0-ii — making a total of $6,5? 
They had disbursed to the workwomen, for sewing, $5,703.94, - nd had on hau i, ,j i.

were made on advantageous terms. Fifteen :•■ tm :- af infantry, one regiment of

been subsisted by the department. The efforts of those connected with the depart-

Fro,'-o. the 16th day of April to the 16th of June, th? medical supervision of the I- 
unti ir regiments was under the direction of an informal medical board — gem; 
who :e loyalty and patriotism moved them to render their services "to the State. U 
their supervision, the physical fitness and medical wants of the soldiers were well sup- 
plied. L'he cost of medicines and" hospital stores, for- all the camps in the Stat*, was 
$1,862.07 ; the cost of the same for three months' outfit, $8/3 L9.25 ; and the out . .' 
surgical instruments, dressings, and furniture, $12,102.40 — making an aggregate of 
$2°, 111. 60. The resident physician of the Massachusetts General Hospital, with 
department, andthe city of Boston,. through th p City Physician, ;av< . reat assistance 
in the sanitary and medical departments of the service. These were gratuitou 
patriotic offerings — a cheerful sacrifice for the interest. of the soldier and the country. 
The Medical Commission, also, — appointed by the Governor on the order of the Sec- 
retary of War, for the examination of candidates for the medical staff, — gave their 
services to the State without compensation. The physicians of Massachusetts have 
done* themselves honor in their free-will offerings.

were carried out. The town sent a company of eighty men to the. war.

corps, to crush treason una rebellion at the South. 

He fell at the battle of Ball's Bluff, captain of Company G, 20th Regiment, Massa- 
chusetts Volunteers — a brave soldier, who did not want to' surrender to the enemy.

Reinhold Wesselhoeft. 

Reinhold Wesselhoeft, born in the city of Weimar, the capital of the duchy of U at 
name, April 10, 1S3$, was the son of .Robert Wesselhoeft, well known love of 

liberty, for which he suffered many years before the revolution of U •; •, - 
his children, of whom Reinhold was the third, emigrated to the Unite! States in 1840. 
Young Reinhold, therefore, received his earliest education in this country, aJ the pub- 
lic s< hools of Boston and Brattieboro', Vt., where his parents resided for many yei 
also through private German tutors. Returning to Germany in hi3 fear, 

ami completing his school education at an institute in the neighi irl i d of his birth- 
place, he returned to America, after an absence of abon-l tftftgi year ■■■ 1 a ; '•• 1 him- 
self to book-keeping and other mercantile' branches ; although t1 ■■ is hi it 
f to the study of natural sciences, wherein, however, thi titin il 
thwarted him. By nature free from narrow prejudices of a religious or 
open to convictions, and ever ready to take a firm ground in defence of 

d vo 
of h: 

>rtunate or oppressed fellow-men, of whatever country or e dor, young Wesi 
hoeft's warm heart and scrupulous fidelity to the trusts committed to him won foi 
many friends. Up to the commencement of the rebellion of the Slave States agaiust 
their government, Mr. Wesselhoeft had taken a lively interest in the political n 
ments of the times. Though young in years, few could have evinced more distin 
than Le the indignation or' a patriot at what he recognized as the wrongs of the ,i 
eal condition of this country, the greatest of which fie regarded the institution i i 
ery, whose decline he ardently hoped to see. When, therefore, the country's peril called 
for the volunteer soldiers of the North, Reinhold Wesselhoeft, relinquishing many a 
brightening prospect of personal success; with his friends, Alois Babo and Ferdinand 
Dreher, was among the first to enlist in a company of his German countrymen. Reg- 
iment after regiment was accepted and sent to the seat of war, while numerous com- 
plete volunteer companies, waiting in vain to be mustered into service, disbanded ; but

generally united in, houoring, in an appropriate manner., one who had bo early in life 
fallen a martyr to his country's cause. 

William Lowe'! Putnam. 

William Lowell Putnam was born in Boston in IS40, and was a son of Samuel K. 
Putnam, Esq., of that city. Although receiving bis education mainly in Europe, and 
residing there many years of his brief life, yet he tost not the love of his native: land, 
ncr the principles of liberty which, his countrymen revere. 

On the breaking out of the wai in 1861, between oppression and freedom, he felt 
called to take an" active part in it. While his patriotism was aroused, a stronger 
motive seemed to inspire him for the contest; in maintaining the supremacy of the 
Government, lie hoped to carry the {.'lad tidings of liberty to all of his countrymen 
throughout the land. 

He enlisted in Company E, 20th Regiment, Massachusetts ^Volunteers ; was elected 
2d lieutenant, and was hi the battle at !■.:-. !■:, Kerry, Oct. 2d. While bravely 
engaged in that flight, he was-seyiQUsIy wounded, and &i(?a the next day at Poolesyille, 
Md. "His body Was brought to Boston, the funeral services took place at the West 
Church, Oct. 28, and it was buried st Mount Auburn, with military honors. 

The following extract is taken from an address, deli.v-c red at the funeral, by the Rev. 
James Freeman Clarke: — 

"The boy-soldier, whose remains arc before us, came, by both parents, from the best 
New England races. His father is descended from the ancestor of old General Put- 
nam ; and his family, on this side, contains such statesmen and scholars as Timothy 
and John Pickering. On the other side, his mother's family has given to us statesmen, 
sages, patriots, poets, scholars, orators, economists, philanthropists, and now gives to 
us also a hero and martyr. Mis .great-grandfather, Judge Lowell, inserted in the Bill 
of Rights, prefixed to the Constitution of this State, the clause declaring that ' all men 
are born free and equal,' !<:•■: the purpose, as he avowed at the time, of abolishing 
slavery in Massachusetts; and ha was appointed by President Washington Federal 
Judge of this district. His grandfather was minister of this church, honoted and loved 
as few men have been, for more than half a century. Of others 1 need not speak — but 
to those who knew net personally our young friend, I may say that 1 is native powers 
and scholarly habits indicated that he would" fully keep the promise given in the tradi- 
tions of his family, 

" He was educated in Europe, where he v/entwhei eleven years old, and whore, in 
France* Serrftauy arid Italy, tie showed that i i p ss*ssed the anct stral !V i hy of mas- 
tering easily ad languages, and where he f:vii nVdy studied classic and Christian 
antiquity ihd art. Under the best and most ! •■■ in ■■- \ ■ idance', he r iriid with joy the 
vivid descriptions of Virgil, while looking down from the hill of Posillippo on the 
headland of ^iscnum and the ruins of Cumin. H* studied with diligence the remains 
of Etruscan art, of which, perhaps, no Amerie; v. cln lar, though hi was so young, 
knew more. And here, let mr mention a distinguished Ldench savant, Br.Guepin, of 
Nantes, in Brittany, who took a peculiar interest in Willi im Putnam, and devoted him- 
self to his instruction as if he had been his parent. This excellent scholar and 
generous gentleman will hear of his death with pain, scarcely less than if William 
were his own child. Tim.-, accomplished he rcturhe 1 to his native land, bat, modest and 
earnest, he made no display of hia acquisitions, and very few knew that he hud acquired 
anything. Whi n the war broke out, his conscience and heart urged him to go to the 
service of his country. His strong sense of duty overcame the reluctance of his 
parents, and they consented. A presentiment that he should not return alive was 
very strong in his mind and theirs. But he gave himself cheerfully, and said, in 
entire strength of purpose, that to die would be -..■.-■■■ . in such a caus ■. And, in the 
full conviction of immortality, he added, * What is death, mother? it is nothing but a 
Bteu in our life..' U is fidelity to every duty gained him the respect of his superior 
officers ; and his generous, constant interest m his sompanions and soldiers. .brought to 
him an unexampled affection. lie realized fully thai this v. tr must enlarge the area of 
frei lora^if itwas to. attain. its true e»d; a-nd in one of his I " letters, tie expressed 
the earnest prayer that it might not cease till it opened t! e way for ■ . • ' . berty. 

" L'l-C'se earnest opinions were connected with a I ' ■ ;•■ \ oi r - ■ wron done to the 
African r: ■ , ai .1 a« interest iu its in pro vein nt. He took with him to the war, as a 
body-servant, a colored lad named George Brown, Win re) tid t • kii In is of Lieut. 
Putnam by gratitude and faithful service. George Brown followed h ■. master across 
the Potomac into the battle, nursed him in his tent, and attended his remains back to 
Boston. Jvor let the devoted courage of Lieut. Henry Sturgis be forgotten, who lifted 
his wounded friend and comrade from the ground, and carried him on his buck a long 



distil ico to the boat, wad v.- tuned again into r- fi jht. Such actions show that E i I 
boya retain the old spirit of their fathers. 

«« In the fatal buttle a week ago, Lowell fell, as is reported, while endeavoring to save 
a wounded pomp in ion — fell, soiled with no ign >ble d i$t — ' non ■ sordi- 

duin.' Brought to th< hospital-tent, he said to .the sur] to dross bis 

wound, ' Go to aOme oj else, to whom you can i i uw ood;y< i , ' 

lik Philip Sydney, giving the water to the so] I era who needed it mo< . elf. 

4i iJrave and beautiful child! was it for this that you had inherited the beat r< mlts of 
p ist culture, and had been so wisely educated au I c ir< fully trained ? Was it for this ! 
to be struck down by a ruffian's bullet, in a hop less Btruggle against i irerwhel 
numbers ? How hard to consent to let those precious lives be thus wa ti d, appi - 
fur nought, through the ignorance or the cut h ssnes ; of those whose duty it was tc 
make due preparation, before sending them to the held. How can we beai it ? 

" Vv'e could not bear it, unless we believed in God. But believing in God and 
Christ, we can bear even this. It is not any blind chance, not t folly, which 

controls these events. All is as God wills, who knows what the world needs, and what 
we need, better than we '-an know it. He uses the folly and sin of man for great ends; 
and he does not allow any good and noble effort to be lost.

"And do we not see, in these great, sacrifices,' that the heroism itself is already a 
ureal gain ? Is it not something to know that we do not belong to a degenerate race ? 
Is it not a groat blessing to know that wc also, and our sons, are still as capable as our 
t ehers wi'iv (d great and noble .sacrifices, — that Massachusetts, God bless her! still

seem so parallel to his own. When Max fell iu a battle like that of last Monday, when

words of his friend:' —

'The Sword of the Lord and of Gideon.** 

in ancient days, when the Ark of the Lord was threatened, the chosen people of G : 
girded on the sword and in the name o{ the Most High smote with great slaught< I 
heathen in their bo r-ders who had arrayed themselves, against their cherished ii 
tion . They fought for an idea, a sacred faith, which to them embraced all thi I 
gn at and good in man. 

During the Crusades, stimulated with a strong religious feeling, men rushed impetu- 
ously lo the rescue of the Holy Sepulchre from The hands of the Infidel. They, tc », 
were animated by aholyand undying faith. 

S;i foilght Cromwell and his psalm^sinemg legions, who smote down the proud hoi 3e 
of Stuart and seized the power of England. 

Impressed with a living faith and high purpose, the Pilgrims, Ted by the Intrepid 
Stand ish and pious, bre> -a,;-, grasped reverently and with firmer hand the Sacred YVrit 
while wielding the §waid to repel the merciless savages--,, and found a new empire fot 
re'iiinn ;md liberty . 

S i fought the heroes of the revolutionary struggle of 1776 — men loyal to their faith 
in God and the dignity and eo^aality of humanity. Inspired with this idea, the) . r- 
shalled themselves in battle . array against despotism, sacrificing ease td;privatio 
suffering, that they might through the baptism of blood esl iblish justice and liberty 
under a republican form of government. A'ii so in 1861 r . when wicked men with ■ 
legious hands attempted to destroy this government — tie palladium of our liberties — 
devoted men sprang armed from the earth, and with earnest souls, pausing not to cal- 
culate the danger, and knowing the righteousness of their cause, cut their way through 
the hosts of rebellion, and saved the national capital from the tide of treason. 

First in the contest, Massachusetts rendered prompt and invaluable aid. Eve; 
watchful for the cause of the Union and liberty, she instinctively "scented the battle 
from afar," and bravely prepared to meet the enemy when its uplifted hand should 
s'rike the blow. 

The Adjutant-General of the State, in his report to the Governor in I860, observed 
the threatened storm, and wisely suggested proper precautionary measures; and Ex- 
Governor Banks, during the last year of his administration, gave to the military 
department of the State his especial attention, and revived somewhat the military spi it 
of the Commonwealth. 

Hi" Excellency, John A. Andrew, on assuming the duties of Governor of the State 
and Ccnnnander-in-'Ciiief of the milki?>, at once understood the crisis and exhibit 
wisdom and sagacity to an extva- rdinviry degree, which sLow.d him to be the ' 
for the hoar," and one fit tc be trusted. with the honor and patriotism of flic State. 
V ita such a leader, and such a people and soldiery, distance was annihilated, and when 
tUe cry went up from Washington, Massachusetts troops rushed through sevtn Stat* 
leaving their dead and wounded on the way, ai 1 were the first to enter the capital. 

To show the military action of the State' in IS(U to put down rebellion, the follow . 
list of the regiments?, With their movements, is given, which, together with ex. 
from 'he aide report of Adjutint-GeneraTSchouler, will furnish matter of much interest 
to the reader. That report, dated Dec. 31, loGl, says — 

"The storm of rebellion which broke upon our peaceful land in April last was fore-'' 
''teen months before by your Excellency and by the Legislature of the Common-" 
"wealth, and wise and liberal provision was made to meet and if possible avert it. " 
''"The worst fears of our people have been realized, and the evidence now afforded by " 
"the living and dead of our true, loyal and gallant sons of Massachusetts, at home" 
"and on the battle-field, proves that the Commonwealth has been "true to her his-" 
"tory, her tradition, axxd her fair fame." The report further states that the r« 
why Massachusetts so promptly responded were — 

" 1st. The excellent system for the organization and discipline of a militia force, " 
"which has so long distinguished th;s Common wealth, and has received the censt mt" 
"attention and approval of the Legislature. 

''•'-'I. The .promulgation .of General Grdei No. i, by your Excellency's direction, or 
"the 16th o.f v last, so that we ascertained w\\ h accuracy the jaumber of office - 
"and men of the Volunteer Militia who would respond ins antly to any call > v 
''.might be made upon them ^>y the Presid nfofttn United States. Opposition- was " 
*' Blade to this order at first, but events soon proved the wisdom of issuing it. Those" 
4% who could not respond as required, received their discharges, and their places were " 
' immediately fid-d by others ready for any emergency* 




" 3d The sa ;;ui>Y nd foresight which induced the Legi ilaturc to pa s th« bill i 
'♦proved by your Excellency on th« 3d oi Apj -. , .- . . su'hor-" 

"izin^ the Adjutant-General to ■:oi > tr;'ct for overcoats, blankei ' ^, 200,000"

"their own, and had in thek s-evei l armories o-yei three thb •.. . , 

"muskets of the b« -i | . tern. 

"Thus when the attack upon the heroic band of Union j atriol \ ! I orl Sumter on " 
'•the l'ith of April extinguished the last hope- of peace, and its fall aroused the' 7 
"mighty energy of our people to maintain their national existence, Massachusetts" 
"was ready f. push forward herregiments, armed . n ! equi] p< d, to defend theflagand " 
"save Washington, in the hour of peril, from capture and spoliation. 

"For three months previous, our Volunteei '! : i .. i . anticipation of somegreat" 
"traitorous movement in the South, hud been drilling almost nighil) in I heir several" 
"armories, so that when the summons came from the Presidi at on th .• loth of April " 
"the ' Fiery Cross' was-sent over the Commonwealth, and is obedience to the call " 
■•the men came forth,-as in the brave davs ofold, leaving the workshop an i the plough," 
" their nets and barges, hemes aad kindred, inspired by love of count) y and the rights " 
"of mankind." 

On the day that Fori Sumter was attacked, the Governor m; I ippKcatioil to the 
Secretary of War for permission to draw two thousand rifled muskets from the L : . S. 
Arsenal at Springfield, in ad\ ance of the artn i l! quo : i b< « on inp due, also to garrison 
the forts in Boston harbor ; but the rifled muskets could not • e prbi ureid, nor p< n .' ion 
granted to garrison the forts. Afterwards, however, fjv 'thousand of the most im- 
proved smooth-bore muskets from Springfield, and four thousand Windsor rifles 
(adthottt bayonets), were ©j talned from the U. S. Ar-s-i ij .1 at Watertown. This state- 
ment is ma4e, as some of the regimen ts have gone tc. the seat of war with smooth-bore 
muskets, but it was no: the fault of the Executive of this ! itate. 

To quote again from the Adjutant*Gerierid s Report •-■ 

"The first call for' troops was by a telegram from S rtator Wilson, dated at Wash-'" 
"ington, April 15th, requesting twenty companies to be sear immediate]} to W'ashii 
'•' ton andthere mustered into service. In the course of the day were received fora tl " 
" requisitions by telegraph from the Secretary of War arid Adjutant-General of the " 
"United States for two full regiments of the Massac luaetts Militia, In compliance" 
" therewith, Special Order No. i-i was issued oh the-same day, directing Colonel J< 
"of the Sixth Regiment, Colonel Packard of the F urth/Coh nel Wardrop of the" 
"Third, and Colonel Munroe of the Eighth, to m isn : their respective commands on " 
"the Boston Common forthwith 'in compliance with a requisition made by the Presi- " 
" dent of the United States.' This order wa-; sent by mail aad by sp< i tl messengers " 
"to the Colonels, who severally resided at Lowell, Quincy, New Bed ord, and Lynn. " 
"The companies were scattered through the cities and towns of Plymouth, Bristol " 
"Norfolk, JCs^ex and Middlesex Counties." 

" In obedience to orders nearly- every company in the above regiments arrived in" 
" Boston the next day." 

"A dispatch from Sen'ati r Wilson, April 16th, staled that Massachusetts was to" 
"furnish immediately four regiments, makina one brigade, with one Brigadier-Gen-"

To complete the p^a mrrahet o( eo;rni,ar, • for tii< r< a ;; <■■ companies were

By special -rder Gen. fjutk-r was commanded on the ISth of April to proceed with

On the 19th of April, ■'■..: Sam id G. Lawrence at the Fifth'Begiraen-t^'as-ordered to

Three Months' Volunteers. 

The pressing emergency of the National Government for aid was fully appreciated 
by Mas* tchu ;etts on the L5th of April, and so alive wa ; she to the impending danger, 
thai the first the jht was m furnish the need< d assistance without " standing upon the 
order of her goi a.;.'' 

Corap nies without full rank* were (speedily fitted h v voinnteers, wlio crowded th

other n ;imenw sueh companies as wereprepared to leave at such" sliort notice. An

folWwiftg were enlisted to serve, for three year« in the U. 8. •■ | rvicf>. 

A dssj .ch, received from Washington Aprii l*5th, stated that Massachusetts was to 
furnish nnmediately four regiments, making one brigade, with one Brigadier General. 


Brit*. G m. D ■ iij F.Butler, Third Brigad v - d Division, M V. M., was ©Tdered on 
the 17th to take command of ihe troops. On the 18th he was ordered to proceed with 
the $th Regiment to Washin rtoo : and May 20th, 1861, hi was prom iti d for hi - gallant 
conduct to be a Maji tl in. t • U.S. \ i ...-. . fl is staff, whei

Capt. Samuel E. C n\v rse, of Lowell ; Engi Capt. 

Bri .. Quarterns ;ter, Capt. Thos. J. Porter, of Woburn. 

On the 30thbf May, Brigadier'General Eben • i V- . Peirce, of Fre( town, 2d Brig ide, 
1st Division M. V. M., was detailed for active duty in place of Brigadier General B it l< .-, 
who, as stated above, had been promoted, and he proceeded at once to J ortress 
roc. Hi* staff at the time he left consisted of Brigade Major and Inspector, Rid ard 
A. Peirce, of New Bedford; Aid-de-Camp, Capt tin Silas P. Richmond, of Freetown ; 
Quartermaster, Capt- Wm. C. Lovering, of Taunton; Engineer, Capt, Augu 
Chamber lin, of Brookline. The disastrous affair at Big Bethel has brought upon I . • 
brave and patriotic officer much obloquy, which was, doubtless, cruelly unjust. 

Scon after this battle, Gen. Peirce returned to Massachusetts an I r tis •:'... i 
nies for the volunteer service, and on the 16th of December, \Si!>], was commissioned 
Col. of the 29th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers, 

In the Adjutant-General's report he says : 

%i It would frr exceed the limits of this report to recount in the brave acts of" 
" our three months* 4*eep's during their term of service. I have given <>, ly a bare out-" 
line Icis sufficient, perhaps, to say that they were the first to n ?pond to the call" 
' "out, the first to march through Baltimore to the defence of the capital, " 
led their blood for the maintenance of our go^ eminent, trie first to open " 
r to Washington by way of Annanolis, the first to land on the s >i! of" 
i hold possession of the most important fortress in the Union, the first to " 
•• i take the voyage of the Potomac an':! approach the Federal city by water, as they " 
*■ had been the first to reaeh it by land. They upheld ihe good name of the State" 
" luring their entire term of service, as well by their good conduct and gentlemanly " 
•* bearing, as by their courage and devotion to duty in the hour of peril. They pr red" 
'• tbe sterling worth of our volunteer miiiti n .. Their record is one which will ever" 
' redound to the honor of Massachusetts, and will be ptized among her richest historic " 
'■treasures. These men have added new splendor to our Revolutionary annals, and" 
" the brave sons who were shot down in the streets of Baltimore on the 19th of April." 
"hare rendered doubly sacred the day when the greensward of Lexington Common" 
" was drenched with the blood of their fathers." 

In the following statement .in regard to the troops from Massachusetts, the three 
■'..'tenths' Regiments are given first.

7, P. m., when the steamer dropped off into the stream, where she remained until 11.30, 
a. «., of the I8tb, when she sailed : bearing away a noble band, many of whom were the 
descendants of the Pilgrims who settled the Old Colony, and established the principles of 
an elevated civilizati in, which their sons were now g ling forth to maintain at thi -

Hardly had the echoes of the guns of Strmter dad away, when the proclamation of 
tht' President, calling fat volunteers, eQutided throne;!) the North, and met a cordial, 
earnest response frnni tbe Eft v eminent)) ol the loyal Slates. Amoj)« the first regiments 
called into the field wa« the Fourth Massachusetts, composed of companies belonging 
to various towns along th • Old Colony shore, i'he order for its appearance on Bost( . 
Conunon, at noon of Tuesday, Jk\is:\\ 16th, reached the hands of Co!. Abner B. Packard 
late on the afternoon of tie toih. He immediatelv issued bis orders, and dispatched 
them by a. special messeager to the several tympanies 'uhderhis cotnmanid. The fur- 
thest point to ho reached by -the in j^senger was Taunt m, v. :. . lr he an ived at two o'clock, 
Tueslaj morning, tunid a driring stonn of rain. Within twelve hours every eomj my 
liad reported itself .at Fancuii Mall, whi. i had l-eeh mad the place of rtn czvoas 
instead of the Common, on account ol the storm. Later in the afternoon, in accord- 
ance with a telegram from Washington, the Sixth ilegiment- was brd red to proceed 
forthwith to Fortress Monroe, while it w s undeiisti id that- the'. remaining regiments— - 
the Third, Fourth, and Kigbth — would remain a day or two longer. On Wednesday, 
Che l?tbi however, the order of the ptecediffg day was (.hanged, and the Fourth Regiment 
* Rc-enliated. t In second detachment that reached Fortress itonroe May 5, 18GI. 


was iv tified to be in readiness, at three o'clock the same afternoon, to n rch. Wil 
exception of muskets and cartridge-boxes, and the old Starr uniform, th« men I 
almost wholly unprovided with arms and equipments. Most of them had expected to 
he able to send or go to their homes again before leaving. They were, however, soon 
fitted nut with overcoats and blankets, wl ich the pi >yi lent for< bight of Go verm .' - 
drew had provided^ — knapsae-ks and haversacks. th< I ttei nf which ■• 
rations for three days; the old guns *ere exchange d fori • field 

and at three p. u. the regiment stood in Merchants' Row, four . ui i 
in^n A\ toll. It proceeded, amid the intense enthusiasm of thi i 
thronged the- streets, to the State, where, after the compani bad n 
further supplies of clothing and equipments of various kinds, the) were • • »ed by 
Governor Andrew, who said- ''It gives rne unspeukal !e pleasure t<> witni .-:-• this array 
from the good Old Colony. You have come from the shores of the Roundin ; 
lie the a«hes of Pilgrims, and yon arc hound on a hi ;h and noble ; il<3 >erty, 

for th • Union and Constitution of your country. Soldiers of the Old Bay .Stan , 
of sires who never disgraced their flag in civil life or on the tented field, I thank you 
from the bottom of my heart for this noble response to the call of your State ai 
country. You cannot wait for words. 1 bid.yon God-speed and an affectionate fare- 
well." Colonel Packard replied in brief and" fitting terms, and the regiment took up 
its line of march for the Old Colony depot. The march through the city ws 
ovation. The intense, earnest excitement of the time howed itself ; ers, in many 

a hearty God-speed, and in many a moistened eye. Quickly embarking on board a 
in readiness to receive it, the regiment, at ten p. M., marched ou board the steamei 
State of Maine, at Fall River. All along the route the depots were throng* I 
anxious crowds, whose cheers and salvos of artillery testified their sympathy and good 
wishes. Owing to the boat beir l- crowded and. baidlj frimmed,:U did . h New 

York until five o'clock, Thursday afternoon. Stopping only to coal and have her ballast 
rearranged, she started at four o'clock, Friday morning, for Fortress Monroe, 
at New York, the officers of the: regiment, by invitation, took supper at the Astor 
House. Not knowing who were in possession of Fortress Monroe, and expe< ins 
he might be attacked by rebel steamers, Colonel Packard ordered a portion, of tl 
to be supplied with ball cartridges, and the six-pounder, the only piece of artilfc rj on 
board, to be made ready for action. At daybreak, April 20th, the iong, low Line of tb< 
wails of the fort were visible in the distance. Anxiously the regiment watched, as the 
boat lay off and on, until at satirise they saw the old flag unfolding from the flag- ' . 
The men w^re quickly landed, and, amid the cheers of the little garrison, marched into 
the fort. The) were warmly welcomed, for those within, from keeping watch and ward 
for many a day, were well-nigh exhausted. Hardly was the regiment well in quarters 
before their labors commenced. The fort Was found to be almost unarmed on trie land 
side, and illy supplied with material of war. For several weeks, the men were c:n 
ployed mounting heavy guns, unloading vessels, storing provisions, keeping guard, etc. 
Near the middle of May, Genera! Butler ariivett and took command Of the Dep: i 
of Virginia, and he having determined to occupy Newport News, a point of land 
commanding JaraesRiver, on the '27th of Ma), the Fourth Regiment, in conjunct 
with a New York regiment under Colonel Bendix, and a Vermont regiment under 
Colonel, now General Phelps, took possession of that point, and proceeded to form an 
entrenched camp. The forti&eations', near a half a mile in Lerigth^.were laid out by 
gaptsin Stewart, U. S. A., ar*d were '"o ■■.■• d < follows . -- A palisade w ii made < :' log - 
eut and brought In from the adjacent forest, against which the earth was th: >wn i 
the outside, forming a rampart twelve feet in width at the base, six feet at tl 
aud six feet in height. In front was a ditch of similar dimensions. Along the .' 
were mounted six pieces of artillery, while on the blu >f was a battery o six h^ 
including one rifled twenty-pounder for the Sawyer projectiles. One or more v< 
of-war always laid off the camp in a position to sweep the beach in either directs n. 
Little occurred while the regiment was at Newport News to disturb the routine oi 
camp life. Working at the entrenchments, doing guard duty, drill and seoutii g went 
umregularly and quietly. On the 9th day of'June, however,' five - s were 

d tailed, with a portion of the Vermont and New York fegi uents,"to make i 
Uchment, to j dn one from Hampton, to start at one o'clock the next morni 
attack Big Bethel, a position held by the enemy, about twelve miles from Newp 
News. With the detachment went tha ever-lamented Lieutenant Greble, in chargi oi 
two pieces of artillery . Of the battle of Fig Bethel it is needless to go into - 
Its unfortunate result was owing to a variety of causes ; but if the other troops ■ ng ■■ 
had done tht ir duty as v ell, and gone as fur, as those from Massa ' us< ! t • and Yem 
the name of Big Bethel would not have headed a long list of Federal repul • s. The 
Fourth Regiment remained at Newport News until the third day of duly, when, in 
accordance to orders- from General Butler, it moved to the vill ige of Hampton, which 
it occupied, with the Third Massachusetts Re ji-ment, dining the remainder of its term 
of service. 6n its an Lval there it found the quaint old town deserted, 1 1 n lly a s< re 
of its former white inhabitants remained, although man} negroes, especially ol 
v'orv vo :,.: on s, wm re still there. The troop* had inarters n d th* m in the ' 

houses, and there remained imdistuTb d until Yv'< hie day, July llth, when 
marched oyer to Fortress Monroe, preparatory to embarking for home. There their 
Springfield muskets were exchanged for old altered flint-lock ones. The men * •• 
addressed by General Butler., aud when on board the boat by Colonel Diramick. 1 
commandant of the fort. The latter said, " I never heard of complaints against M 



eachusetta me:), next ft regulars let rric cofn'raand Ma ." At 

lbre< P. tf. of the loth, the regiment embarked on board the steamer S. I;. Span! ling, 
and after a pleasant passage of ibout S.fty»six bourB entered Boston Harbor. Owinn 
to circumstance^ it w^s deemed expedient to keep thi • could 

be mustered out. [t landed, therefore, on JLon^jUlu . t. 

ment alreaiji encarapeti, and ; i • remained • when the iwo 

regiments struck their tenia, and shortly aftei Ian I at Long (V'harf, from ti 
they marched to the Common, The reception, somewhat damp ! the new 
battle nf Bull Run, was yet most enthusiastic, Arrivi'i on ll e I Ion i on, an order 
from Governor Andrew was r<-.'. ; , thanking the troops for thi ir services, and t: en th 
several companies were dismissed to their respectiV< hi me , where in most cases 
preparations had been made to receive them. The) h ■ ! los ■ ■ tbi h duty. Fir>t to leave 
Massachusetts .it their country's call, they first of all to >d <>n Virginian soil, r« - 
battle for the old flag. They never faltered when dutj call* ' them, and they merited 
and received the thanks of a grateful people. Very many of the members of the 
Fourth Regiment are to be found in the various regiments n< w in tl e fi Id, ' 
when the time comes, they vvill nobly uphold the honor that regiment justly won of 
being the iirst, in their country's darkest hour, to leave their homes in bcr defence.

Named in honor of Major-General Benjamin Lincoln. To the kindness of the town 
clerk of Hingham, we are indebted for the following facts. On the 15th of Aprti

10th, in three hours from which time* the memherr? w re assembled and ready for duty. 
There being no means of conveyance to Boston at thai hour, thvir departure was delayed 
until the next day, when they left the town. While al tli ir armory, and just before start-

two men, under the command -of Lieut. Luther ~t< :>;■-:, -■:!!, jr. (the captain having

(Three Months' Volunteers.) 

The early pages in the history of the rfebellioa of ISCO will show, amidst the c^ n 
and most revolting instances of treason and national corruption, the m >st .: \ 
exampl«3'of patriotism, and the sublimes! heroism. For when the call of the govern- 
ment for 75,090 teen va c :^d over the land, '.he uprising of the people in response 
was so general ;ind so sudden, that it stands as the most signal instance of the kind in 
811 history. Am-uig the few Massaelittsettis ' reghne-ncs v>ho had the honor to be ; ; '-x--, 
this movement, .the Fiflfr is conspicuous^ Prom the very soil whereon thi E " ati

freedom which" was then so dearly bought, its members, of'cveri •,. 

and intelligent, and bred in the peaceful arts which have prospered New England i - 
t&terruptedly for upwards of half a century, rushed to arms in the sup] i ti ' thei 
country's honor, and in five suppression of a wicked rebellion. The national a 
for three months; but, a? the record shows, when the three months e? pii -■■■■ | July 19). 
the regiment found itself on the soil of Virginia, before the enemy, and at a 1 m< wh 
its services, enhanced tenfold by its discipline and acquaintance with the "situation, 
were invaluable to the country^ . Ia_this critreal hour there was no voice foi returning 
home. Steadily the) looke'<i the enemy in the face, audit is to their honoi that th i 
most trying ordeal, their hard-fought battle, was a free offering upon the altar of 
country. The men of Concord and Bunker Hill had struck a ne« blow topi 
the Union of their fathers, and it remains to place their deeds tide by side with those 
winch h ive came down from the days of the Revolution. 

At a meeting held on the loth of "April, it was voted to tender the services of the] 
iment to the Commander-in-chief, and on the 17th the regiment was < i lei I to qi . . 
itself in readiness for doty. Or- the 10th orders were issued to report for dut; , and th 
following companies were attached to the Fifth Regiment ; — Company H. of the First 
Regiment, and Companies B, E, G, and H, of the Seventh Regiment. The order to 
meet in Boston was promptly responded to, and the troops b< an to arrive at Faj ev 
Hall ;k early as half past two o'clock in the afternoon of the same da\ (18th). Th 
enthusiasm on the arrival of each company, attended by citizens from their native 
towns,- was intense, and during- the entire day and" night ofi tti 20 

dredsof persons were collected abnut the headquarters al Fai lil Hall. The prepara- 
tions incident to equipping a. regiment, called together in a few hours, were va\ 
great, yet they were completed with the utmost order, and, at fom o'clock vs. the morn- 


t Join- J at Fortress Monroe.

of riiis quiet Sabbath mtntih g d d i it ;• train the enthusi • . i

God-speeds as r,he*rcgimeni p is&ed by. At a point where the tr.oo] scros 

Street, a detachment from the Boston Cadets was rli iw i up at | 

crowd was in waiting at the railway station, and the last inti rch inges of ai 

last farewells were here piven to many who had been called from their homes at an 

hour's notice. Maj. Cook's Battery of Light Artillery had been ordered to join Colonel 

Lawrence's coram md, and were nlreadyon the train. It nearly sev en o'i 

the lonq train left the station* Of the material of this regiment, the Boston 

Advertiser, of April 22, says : — 

'•The Fifth Eiegiment is composed mainly of companies belonging in the vl in 
Boston, and ar ■ v ell known for -their bravery and nobleness of character. C 
by Colonel Lawrence, an experienced officer and noble-hearted man, this regiment will 
sued ploty o-i the old Commonwealth, whose honor she is so ready to sustain. There is 
that peculiarly connected with this regiment which has been deeply impressed on the 
minds not only of the citizens, who have watched their movements so anxi ly, but 
upon the mind3 of far-sighted and skilful officers. It is the fact that they are going to 
War, and are prepared according!;.'. Following the example of their unas urn in; com- 
mander, the companies are arrayed in serviceable uniforms, fatigue caps, and freed 
rill the paraphernalia which are- but the pride, pomp, and circumstance of war. In viev 
q£ the s.fe en r€ dityftf Xkeh mission, we can see only the brave hearts and noble souls of 
this gallant regiment." 

As the ears pasaied rapidly through the centre of the old Bay State on this, the Sab- 
1 ath day, its progress was viewed v* ith favor by ail, and no tithing-man attempted to ar- 
rest them. On the contBiry, a member of the regiment writes :-— 

,; We arrived m Springfield at one p. m., on the 21st, in the best of spirits. Our jour- 
ney was a complete ovation. You would not Lave thought it could have been the S Lb- 
bath, to see ".he people in the differ* nt p ices we passed assembled at the depots, to h< u 
the roaring of cannon, the ringing of bells, the bands of music, tl e cheering, &c. O'd 
men grasped us in their. arms, as we halted for ; bin f time at the railroad stations, while 
their streaming eyes and fervent ' God bless you,' told of the intensity of the ir feel 
At Springfield, the people completely overwhelmed the regiment with acts of kin l- 
ncv-\ They spread for them a substantial and bountiful repast; and when the 1 oo - 
1' ft for Hartford, scenes occurred which will never be erased from the memory of those 
witnessing them. One -little person?! incident 1 cannot help mentioning: A charming 
young lady asked for my address, tied the tricolor in my button, and told me to wear 
ic even unto death, if need be, which you know 1 will do." 

At Worcester, as well as at Springfield, the people welcomed the troops with unhoi r i ■' 
enthusiasm. At Meriden, Connecticut, '.-here they arrivi i at three o'clock, the people hud 
dispensed with the church services for the afternoon, and had buried themselves in pre- 
paring; food for the troops — a marked evident c of thi : ■ inter st in, an i tin ir ■■•. pi i ciation 
of, the prompt response of the regiment to. the country's' call. At New Haven, Brid 
£ort; and ot her places along the rout;-, the ovations were of the most enthusiastic kind.

the -afternoon of theJ24th, amidst 8 sc-ver< rain-storm. There were in port on their airi- large steamers rilled with troops, ana a number of United States vessel-, 
making a truly warlike appearance. 

On the next day, the 2oth, on ers having been received to proceed to Washington, the 
regiment marched to the Annapolis Railway Station to take cars for Washington. ] b 
train could only ac< ommodate four companies, and trie remaining six companies, under 
command of Lieut nant Colonel G re. ne, followed on fuot. From a letter written at this 
lime •■■<■ make tne folio dug extract: — 

'• We < xpe ;ted every moment to bf pitched down some embankment; but we ran very 
'.:i.' n: pun light, could see the road v< :y w ell. We had to stop and repair 
; but finally arrived at the junction in safety. We got out, be- 
'■> from' Washington, and st ri dot; i inarch ovei th< Wash- 
iltiiriore antt Ohio Railroad. We marched from ten to twelve 
miles and -' doWntO take breakfast. While eating breakfast, a messenger came to out 
.i done], i*l t id him that about one hundred mounted ridtmen were going to attack us 
about five ni ! ■- froui where we were. We could see men on horseback in'thi woods 
wconnoiterinK, but should not have thought anything about it if we 1 id not . a this 
information. We marched six miles, and halted to rest. The sun was very hot, and 
our burdens heavy. The men threw thems-lves down, and no soonei were on their 
•backs than they were asleep. Seme would actually go to sleep while eating their lum ti

During the entire march it was evid< i * t 'aat the inhabitants regnrde ! the troops with 
disfavor. Mounted horsemen were often seen; at one tim 
being deceived as to the number of troops on the way, thej d< emed il •• I i >1 
violence. By the arrival of the train, hich had made but slow pi 
of damage to th« 10 id, the troops were i nveyed to Washing n, 
distance, wi ere they arrived abeMt uooja on the 26th of April. The n maining bj . 
panies arrived the next morning at eight o'clock, and joined the regiment, I 
to march {r<->:M Annapolis, about twenty miles, to the junction, and then • 
cars to Washington. This march was necessitated by the destruction of a portion of I . 
railroad track by the rebels, immediately after the first part of the ref imeni 
over it, and upon the return of the Locomotive for the remainder of the troops, it was 
thrown from the track and rendered unserviceable. 

On their arrival in Washington, the regiment was immediately q in the 

Treasury Building. The following is a diary of events, connected with this r< 
from that period : — 
April 20. The baggage arrived. The President visited the regiment during th 
May 1st. Marched to Jackson Square end were mustered into the I i . 
service, and then passed in review before the President. While in the Treasurj Bi il l- 
ing the companies were re-]ettered. 

24th. For several weeks the mornings have been devoted to squad and company 
drills and target practice, and the afternoons to regimental drills conducted bj 
Lawrence and Lieut. Col. Greene, which soon brought the regiment to such a stal of 
discipline as to win the highest encomiums on all sides. 

23th. During the funeral services of Col. Ellsworth in Washington, it was rumored 
fehaLan .attack was expected in the direction of Alexandria, and at ten o'clock in the 
forenoon, the regiment was ordered by Gen. Mansfield to march at once in ",ji 
rig" across LoOg Bridge to repel the enemy who were reported to be approa 
The Enthusiasm of the men was intense; all the men, including several who v. r«: 
excused from duty for the day by the surgeon's certificate, eagerly gra ;ped t.l cir mus- 
kets, and in less than fifteen minutes the regiment, under command of .• 
(Lieut. Col. Greene being' absent in Boston on leave), was on the way at double-quick 
to meet the rebels. Gen. Mansfield highly complimented the regimen!: for its despatch, 
declaring that he had " never witnessed a similar order more speedily and promptly i c- 
ecuted." Col. Lawrence, who, under orders, was attending the funeral ceremonies, 
pall-bearer, joined his regiment without delay. After an hour's detention on the Vir- 
ginia side, the colonel received orders to return, with 'directions to pack up and march for 
Alexandria, that night. At half-past ten o'clock that evening the regiment hied out of 
the Treasury Building and' proceeded toward Alexandria, While oa Long Id 
most pleasing episode occurred. When it was discovered that the regiment had mly a 
State color, not having yet received their national ensign, several Massachusetts gel 
men in Washington procured a. handsome flag, and following the regiment overti 
midway on Long Bridge. The regiment halted, and Col. Lawrence, having advanc d 
toward the carriage, was surprised by the presentation of the beautiful ensign. After a 
happy acknowledgment of the gift, the regiment again moved forward, and en 
that night near the city. 

26th. The regiment moved back about half a mile to grounds occupied in Revolu- 
tionary times by G-en. Washington, and where some of the earthworks are yet I ■ 1 •

* : Camp MASSACHirsr/ns, June 25, 1 SOI. 

To lion. II.c).r>/ M'i:.:.o,i: — 

J !,:-v Sir .- — The undersigned: ; captains of this regiment, entertaining a high opinion 
of the military knowledge and efficiency of Lieut. Colonel Greene, Maj >r Keyes, and 
Adjutant Barri, and learning that they are about re leave us to assume po >ition. hi the 
United States Army, respectfully beg leave to express to you our deep regret that we 

are to be deprived of their valuable services before our term of enlistment expires; and 
we desire your influence to effect such arrangements that they may remain with us 
during the remainder of our term of service. There are many in this regiment, both 
officers and men, who are desirous of . re-enlisting when the opportunity occurs, and 
are anxious to do so under these officers, consequently they are anxious to retain them 
till their present term expires, that they may have the opportunity of enlisting under 
their old favorites." 

At dress parade, the retiring officers took formal leave of the regiment, expressing 
their regret at their- departure, and trusting that to vd itever field their colonel might 
lead them, they would well sustain their honor and their credit. 

July 4th. The thy was appropriately observed by the regiment. At twelve o'clock, 
St., the reaiment formed under arms on the parade, while the national salute was firii . , 
antl afterward formed a hollow square, Col. Lawrence and staff in the centre. After "a 
few .preliminary remarks by the colonel, the hymn "America" was sung by the entire 
as n! ly. Chaplaftj I>e Costa, then tead the D< claration of Independerree, and offered 
appropriate prayers for the President and Congress, and for the general welfare and 
perpetuity of the Union. Then follbwcd the singing, of the (i 'S\ \ .- \ led Bai 
Which led the way for a speech from Colonel Lawrence, touching on variou 3 in' 
connected with the day and the regiment. His remarks elicited hearty applause, 
and at the close, throe cheers were given for the "Stars and Stripes." In the evening 
there was ■:■■ display of fireworks, got up in rather an original style. 

5th. In consequence of an injury sustained by Lieut. Colonel Greene, before leav- 
ing Washington, the reniment had been since that time without the services of that 
officer, and both he and Major Keyes, having some time since received appointments in 
the regular army, thereby creating vacancies, an election was held, and George 11. 
Pierson, Captain of Company A, — senior captain, — was elects i lieutenant coloi l, and 
John X. Boyd, Captain of Company K, was elected major: Lieut. John G.Chambers 
was appointed adjutant. Gov. Andrew visited the camp; and, after examining into 
the condition of the troops, their quarters; the qualitj of their rations, &c, — with 
which he expressed himself highly pleased,-— and a hasty introduction to the line 
officers, the regiment was formed in mass on the parade, where the colonel introduced 
to the regiment Governor Andrew, who entertained the men with .a' few ehcoin 
remarks, assuring them that although far away from her maternal eye, Massachusetts 
still h d the interest £nd welfare of ner sans at heart, and stood with open hand, and a 
heart oversowing with gratitude, to welcome 'heir return home at the close of the 
duties required of them by the present distracted state- of our beloved country. During 
his r marks the Governor asserted that ad the three month ' region nts w. uld be order* d 
home at the* _tp. ration of their term of enlistment, and no more • ■■' ive service n quired 
of them, unless they saw fit to volunteer in new regiments; adding, that he regarded 
the 'material Of the Fifth Regiment such as would make skilful < dicers in the com 
plated three years' regiments. The Governor was enthusiastically cheered, and at the 
cm c of his remarks, immediately returned to Washington. 

During the past week, Fort Ellsworth had. been finished, and the daily drills of the 
regiment were resumed in earnest. 


1 tli. The regiment received ordei • to p ■•' , :■■ , and itore it at Alex- 

andria, in anticipation of a march. 

16th. The knapsacks were packed and left in camp. With three days' ration* and 
a blanket slung in a toll across the shoui ler, the ri .on.- • t, in " light mar< ' 
crossed Shutcr's Hill, and, witlv the- other r« ins ntsoftl division took upM 
march for Ccntreville. The Fifth, in Col Prai in's i' ide> haying ■• :■ 
with the right of the division, was at the head of 1 1? c column, under Co!, lleintj 
Companies; I) and E were deployed as slur nvishers during the day. At 7 
regiment halted, and prepared to bivouac during the night. At 8£ o'chv' 
was given, and soon after three prisoners and two horsed were brought in by the g I. 

17th. Themarch was resumed at 7 o'clock,, a.m., with C A and E 

as skirmishers. Fifty from the Fifth Regiment, together with fifty from the I :: it Min- 
nesota Regiment, detailed at Alexandria as pioneers, with an axe pi< :e, and tin 
slung across their backs, closely followed the skirmishers. The troops \ roci eded cau-

The people had had no notice of the approach, as the troops had come by .t circu 
route. The secession pickets now spread the alarm, and the whole countrj 
aroused. On every hand the scouts found evids nee of the re. ent presence of the . i

felled by them. At one point the advance guard was fired upon by the enemy, who 
immediately ran, leaving their knapsacks, blanket*, &c, as mementoes foi our men. 
Near by a battery of earthwork, had been erected, but no movement was made in its 
defence. About two hundred rebels, encamped a short distance ahead, fled precipi- 
tately, leaving their camp equipage and a large amount of stores behind, to< ethc 
their dinners half eaten. At 5 o'clock, i\ :.i., the troops reached Sangster's Station on 
the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, where the regiment hoped to intercept the I i 
the enemy from Fairfax ; but the bird had flown about an hour before, burain 
bridges to cover the retreat. An hour sooner and our column would have been able 
to cut them into pieces, arid with tufting loss. Col. Lawrence rode all day at the head 
with the skirmishers and pioneers, as he did the day previous, gallantly conducting the 
advance. To-day's inarch was twelve miles. The regiment bivouacked in am 
•field, on the edge of a magnificent wood-, near the railroad, and enjoyed a sound slee] 
which they much needed, for the march was quite exhausting. 

18th. A scouting party of forty, under Capt. Messer, of Company I), left camp at 
half-past nine o'clock, a.m., and reconnoitered by a circuitous route in a southerly 
direction, toward the Qccoquan River, on the opposite side of the railroad from Ccntre- 
ville, They engaged the enemy's pickets, fifteen in number, whose roll they captured 
at Wolf Run Shoals, eight nobs from Sangster's Station. One of the rebels was ;

field and bivouacked for the night. The lights of the different regiments of tie sri 
army of thirty thousand were to be seen on every side. During the night alight ra 

19th. Many o r the officers ami soldiers erected brush tents. News of the di -c 
result of the skirmish of yesterday, in which the Massachusetts First bor< a proi 
part, was the exciting topic, together with the probabilities of the morrow. At ..> ^ . 
p.m., divine seivice was held. 

20th. At half-past two o'clock, p.m., orders were received to prepare for an a - 
vauce, ami three days' rations Were distributed. The order to march at sis o'c! i . •■ - 
changed into an order to start soon after midnight. 

21st. A: quarter-past (me o'clock, a.m., the command came to " fall in lively,' ■ •■ I 
the line was promptly formed. At half-past two the regiment, in its turn, start* I, but 
soon baited until h.-.f-pa.,: four o'clock, when toe whole division took up it \ m 
BaH Run, just three months to the day and hour since the regiment marched out of 
Faneuil Llall. The. larger part of the route lay through the woods, whose shade mit- 
igated theatmost intolerable heat, The se rcity of v ater, howevi r, was severely :• It by 
the troops. The Fifth, after marching about ten miles, of which the last mile or two was at 
d'juhlc-quk-k, halted at about eleven o'clock. The general ■:.• jagement had already 
b< gun, a; ■': in ■• few minutes this? order was given to cro • •• the ford, md Lh« r< glmi ..* n 1-

for a time their 11 in-kets, fee. came trie order, " L'hfth of Massachusetts, ior> i I, 
; - rt 1 ■■- pun k, march ! " Aw iy they went past the d.< • 1 and h iuii . ' ; . friend and 
fue, who lay where tbey-feil, and, in trie midst of shot and b trsti tg shell, took th< 
t»on on the brow of a hill, directly in front of the rel el batteries, and fired at their i 
>ng infantry. The enemy's artillery getting their range, the regiment was ordered in 
/ ;i -^, and to mil on their faces, while a" shot from th rel Lbafefcesiss i ■■■ stly ;'•>- ?d 
just over their Lead-?. "A Looker On" Rives the P Slowing description of the Fifth on 
the field; — ° . 


"Ivavi the Massachusetts! Fifth in their dark uniforms and their steady advi 
under the enemy's tiro of shot and shell; I noticed them some distance off; they came 
into the field by a flank movement, and then into column, with as much co i • 
khay. had, been on an. ordinary muster-field. They then hud I i geld, 

exposed to the full foree of the rebel batteries, but they did not wav t m the

front of the enemy's batteries. Here 1 first saw their Colonel (Lawrei ■• | a» 
head. lie is tali and slim, with dark hair. He is quite young, not more than twenty- 
five. [The roster says twenty-eight years.] They took' iheir place, in perfect i 
and fought bravely." 

Another says : — 

'•The boys were no way abashed by this hot reception, bul took the whole I 
coolly, waiting patiently to 'pitch in' again. The firing was now p 
and at times it seemed as if the heaven-, would burst a'sunde* with the concussion. 
Colonel Lawrence, standing most of the time in the middle of the regiment, used his 
utmost efforts to keep the men calm, in their places, close to the grow d out o ' th< i 
of the shot, which went singing their peculiar death -song three or four feet above the 

Several of the men were wounded by the bursting of shell ; and private Angier was 
struck by a si:: pound shot in his leg. This rest afforded great relief to the men, whose 
mouths were parr lied with thirst ; the scarcity of water, the rapid marching, and double- 
quick movements having well-nigh exhausted them. A field officer rode up and in- 
quired, " What regimens of regulars is this ? '' The men answi red, " We are not regu- 
lars; we aTe the Fifth of Massachusetts." He replied, '-Is it possible! I thought you 
were regulars, you are in such perfect order under tire." 

The Massachusetts Eleventh took a position on the left. Another regiment adva 
ki line on the right, but broke with the utmost disorder, the men firing recklessly 
and flying, with injury to their friends and none to the enemy. 

Col. Franklin, commanding the brigade, ordered the regiment to take a position for- 
ward to charge with the bayonet. The order was promptly obeyed, and away went the 
regiment, on the double-quick, towards the position designated. The snot and shell 
came thicker and faster, whizzing mostly just over their heads. A change of orcl rs 
came to the Fifth ; <; The Zouaves are going to charge ; support them ! " The regiment, 
splashing through a brook, hastened towards the Zouaves. On the way. a battery of 
artillery drove at full speed through the centre of the regiment, completely breaking 
up the ranks of the color company and another. " Rally, rally," shouted the officers; 
and under that fierce fire the two companies rallied, and again came the command to 
the regiment, " Forward, double-quick." A. position was taken on the left of the Zou- 
aves and about one hundred fee t to the rear,, and the firing commenced on the right. 
A most murderous fire was here kept up by the rebels. 

The United States Artillery was doing good exe< ution on the left and front, but wi re 
obliged to retreat, over half their number be ing killed or wounded. The attached 
to the gun-carriages and caissons, rendere 1 utterly unmanageable by some of the drivers 
being killed and themselves wounded, earn -;• thundering down the line of the Fifth, 
knocking down men and scattering the ranks of the left wing in every direction. The 
companies rallied again, promptly forward. em the colors, the colonel and officers every- 
where directing, and the men pouring a dea ily fire into the enemy. 

Fh.-tlie advance the .color-bearer, Lawrence, bravely waving the national colors, was. 
shot dead, by a musket bail in his breast. Sergeant Wallace, himself wounded, seized 
the national flag as it fell from Lawrence's hands, and raised it gallantly. Sergeant 
Major Quincy receiving from Sergeant Wallace the Massachusetts flag, bore it bravely. 
Col. Lawrence, wounded, was borne to the rear as the retreat commenced. Th 
ment retreated from the field in some confusion, mostly by companies, but was soon 
well together again, and, under command of Maj. Boyd, (Lieut. Col. Pierson at this 
time left to render assistance to Col. Lawrence), marched to their bivouac in Centre- 
ville, where the regimental line was formed, muskets stacked, and with a guard set the 
regiment lay down for a night's rest. 

In about an hour, an order came to march to Washington. The regiment rising at 
half-past one o'clock, a. m., had inarched a full day's journey before reaching the battle- 
field, had fought on the field about five hours, had retreated over the route marched in 
the morning, and were now ordered to march about twenty-five miles to Washington, — 
a truly hard day's task ! A couple of the men, accidently left behind at the bivouac in 
Centreville, slept soundly on the ground until nine o'clock the next morning, and then 
travelled leisurely to Alexandria, without seeing an enemy. 

22d. 1 arly in the forenoon it began to rain, and by n< on it poured. About ten o'clock, 
the regiment arrived 'at Camp Massachusetts, and at half-past eleven o'clock, orders 
were received for the regiment to march to Washington; and packing their knap- 
sacks, tl.ey started for the Capital, under M tjpr Boyd, where, after a march of about 
nine miles thrni gh the mud and rain, they arrived at about four o'clock, P. M., hungry, 
wvt to the skin, and covered with :m>h\. Many being wound 1, tin y presented a truly 
pitiable appearance. They bore the fatigue tn mfuliy, and not a murmur escaped them. 
They were quartered in several different buildings, < hi! the sick and wounded wer€ 
generously cared for by the citizens, who took them to their own houses and provided 
them with dry clothing, food, and ;/oud beds. Hundreds of troops arrived that night, 
many of them suffering from wounds', and, for want of accommodation, were obliged to 
ie on the sidewalk. 


The Fifth remained in 'Washington ihe next five days. 

28th. On Sunday, the 2Sth, at 9 o'clock, a.m.. the regiment formed lino on Pennsyl- 
vania Avenue, near Willard's Hotel, under comm ind of Lieut. Col. Pierson, and 
Rddre*se<.k by Col. La"wve.nce r whf>, though still sufferin from his ■ ■•; I «va d \ r-

A. m., amved at ; Baltimore -at 2'O'cloek, v. M., and left foi Philadelphia at I \ ' -. 
i\ si.:, where they arrived at oj o'clock on Monday morning, 29th. 

29th. After a substantial collation, the regiment started for New York, arriving 
there at 4£ o'clock, p. M.., and meeting with a most hearty and enthusiastic rcc< 
The o Ecers were entertained at the Astor House, and the rank and file were provided 
with a bountiful supply of refreshments at the Park Barracks. The regiment l< '". 
York at 1h o'clock, p.m., arriving at Groton, Conn., at 6£ o'clock, a. m., the next 

30th. The regiment left Groton for Boston at 7-i o'clock, and arrived at 
latter place at 3] o'clock, p. w. 

The regiment was met at the railway station by the Second Batt ilion of Infai try, 
which volunteered an escort. An immense concourse of people throng id the ra 
buildings, and the neighboring streets. The regiment disembarked a.« po sible, 

find formed line. At half-past one o'cloek the column moved into Boylston street, '-There 
the Second Battalion* with Gilmore's Band, were drawn up to receive thi m. After the 
usual formalities, the escort, with a carriage containing His Honor Mayor \\ ightman, 
and several members of the Governor's staff, took the lead, and the pro-* 
proceeded through Tremont, Court, and State streets, and returning, proceeded 
through Washington, School, and Beacon streets, to the Common. The streets through 
which me regiment passed were lined with people, and from sidewalk, from door, 
wJadow, and house top, the plaudits of the assembled thousands welcomed back I 
gallant rioops. The whole niarcri was one continued ovation. The Boston Jour i .1 • ■" 
that evening says of the scene on the Common : — 

"People began to flock to the Common at an early hour, and on the arrival ol 
escort, an hour previous to the arrival of the regiment, the crowd had become v< rylarj 
After several hours of anxious waiting, the commotion in the neighborhood of t Im- 
providence Railway Station plainly indicated the arrival of the train, and hun h 
bent their steps in that direction. Most, however, remained on the Common, sup] o»iug, 
of course, that the troops, who had had nothing whatever to eat since their departure 
from New York or Monday evening, would first partake of the collation which I i 1 
been spread for some hours on the Beacon Street mall. The regiment, however, pro- 
ceeded through the streets of the city before arriving on the Common. Their approach 
was the signal for a grand rush. Fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and friends, 
the hands or clung about the necks of the soldiers as they came upon the parade 
ground. The strict order 'not to meddle with the boys on the march' was only 
partially heeded, and the detour or* the parade ground was accomplished by the tr i •; I 
at the sound of familiar music, with their glorious colors still flying, and with numerous 
accessions to their ranks. No sooner had the regiment been formed in line p 
with the Charles Street mall, than from all quarters of the parade ground - i 
throngs of people to greet them. The orders to stack arms,&c, were obeyed 
great disadvant ges, as at this time the ranks were much broken by the influ s of ii - 
numerable friends. Then followed the greetings. The Colonel rode.down the ] 
ground on his splendid horse, receiving the hearty congratulations of his friends on ■ 
sides. The civil and military authorities present, including several United States 
officers, repaired to the marquee at the north end of theground, where a repast was laid, 
and where many friends had been gathered. In the scenes of welcome and heart-felt 
congratulation, the repast was at first well-nigh neglected. 

"Many an affecting incident occurred, and many tears of welcome were shed within 
the tent and all along the ranks. The troops were conducted to their collation, 
were for a couple of hours allowed the full enjoyment of the meeting. On< 
failed of inter; st in walking among them. Here a hardy young soldier was ex!.. 
a shattered musket, or a few clean builet-holes in his garments; another was the 
centre of an eager crowd, who were listening intently to the last authentic account of 
the battle oi' Bull Run, from an 'eye witness.' Outside the lines, little knots, of 
people listened to new incidents of the fight, and none enjoyed the scene better than 
the returned volunteers. 

"To drink from a soldier's canteen that bad been often filled from the puddles of Fair- 
fa:, and Centrevillej was the especial delight of many, while trophies of the field were 
liberally dispersed en all hands." In scene's like these" two happy hours of the afternoon 
passed away, and we heard it from the lips of many of the regiment, that it was a 
source of espc< ial delight that their first reception at heme was beneath the green trees 
of Boston Common." 

A special order was issued from head-quarters, dated July 30, substantially stating 
that after three mouths' service in the cause of government, the Fifth Regiment of 
Massachusetts Volunteer -Militia, which Col. Lawrence had so well commanded, was 
returned to the old Commonwealth, whose »o>id name and unsullied honor the regiment 
had so nobly upheld. The people of Massachusetts welcome the regiment, and will 
fver cherish, with gratitude, its patriotic services. The memories of the men of the 
I iftU who have fallen in the great cause.aad whose bodies lie tnoulderingin the soil of "V ir- 
{•mi.\, Massachusetts will ever hold in grateful rememl ranee. At ten minutes past four 
the regimental line was formed, when Capt. Aruory commenced the formal proceeding of 


mustering the troops out of the service of the CJuited States. This ceTeraonj '■ 

q hour, and after the different companies were mustered oat, their respective Cap- 
tains assumed the command, and inarched homeward. On their . til f

Committees of citiz< nsfrwra the various towns were present, to welcome their i

point of numbers only to that which marked the entry of the troops into Boston, •• l- 
coraed them home. But the honors did not end here. ,\ m i i >u < un] my recepti >ns 
took place on succeedi • days, and counties s marks of approval showed in some degree 
the public appr< ( : ; '■ ion of the no! le laboi s of the soldiers of the i ifth. On the < ■. 
of Saturday, August 31st, Col. Lawrence- received from hi ■ c dh 

1S55) an elegant sword, a fitting testimonial for services such as nave been recorded. 
The occasion of the presentation, in view of the arduous < tn ; igu which had just 
closed for the Fifth, was>one of peculiar interest. 

Thus ended a campaign, begun in the. hour of the nation's sorest trials, when her all 
was entrusted to brave and loyal hearts, and when »he found her truest supporters in 
the ranks from Massachusetts. Among the few regiments, who, for three month.-, left 
their common callings, and girded on the armor for their country's defence, hone can 
boa.- 1 a fairer record than the M'assa'chUss tt - fifth. The varied and somewhat irn

Company O ( Olulrlesiowii Artillery), Ctoari 

>wn. — 5th Reg, 

The company is known as tlie Charlestown Artillery, and was formerly Co. P, 1st Eeg. 
of Artillery; but, several yours ago, was changed, with several other companies ; to 
Safantry, and has since been k> ov » as Co. D, oth e- e. lufaa! •/ M. V. 51. '\Ti, > !o the 5th 
JSegknent vi as in Washington, in 5fay last, the coinp mies were re-letlercd, and the Gh ir- 
lestown Artillery became Co. C; but, since the return of the regiment, the old com] 
have received their former letters. The Charlestown Artillery was organized ."•• ■ .• 
1786, and was the first company to celebrate the au*nv:er*ary of the Buttle of Bunker Hill, 
June 17. ir~ i. Sometime in 1830, the company disbanded,* but was re-organized Nov. I . 
1831, and has continued to pro >per ever since. 

William 11. Swan, Captain of the Charlestown Artillery, received orders t i assemble his 
command at their armory, at 12 o'clock;, :•?., Wednos lay, April 17, and by noon of the i i 
day they were ready to march. But orders came for the company to bold themselves in 
readiness, at their armory, to march -it any monmnt. On Friday, April It), the Fifth Kegi- 
ment was ordered to rendezvous at Fauci! il ii il! , md lla Artillery, in company n ith the 
City Guards, of Charlestown, inarched over to i'.-- ■' >n to the half, where they remained 
until the. regiment departed for Washington, kfco o'clock Sunday morning, April 21. This 
company, on leaving Chariestowu. had abundant evidence- of the aff • tioi an 1 high esteem 
with which their fellow-citizens regard themj and, on their return from the war, another 
demonstration was made iu honor of their patriotic devotion. [See notice on pagt: 189, 
under Company K. ] 

In just shr«e moutlts from the day they left Boston, July 21, the Fifth Regiment, num- 
bering between 700 and 800 fighting men, among whom wore the Charlestown Artillery, 
left Centreville. Va., for BulfBuu. On that day the Charlestown Artillery, Co. C, was 
ordi red, with the regim -;.t, r i the bv iw, of tin aim or< • directly is, front of the main 
battery of ; iie t nemy, and were there exposed to a galling iire from the b ittery for nearly

-Sixth Regiment, Infantry. 

This regiment, though widely scattered in the counties of Middlesex and Essex, 
mustered in force at" Lowell, April 16th, 1861, at nine o'clock in th« m rrriiig, \ t i ; * -•■■■ 
<■{ ;.' m having had mor« than twelve hours' notice, and some -\ great deal less. Bt-fore 
leaving JUowell, they were addressed by the Mayor and others, and. wen cheei 
crowds of enthusiastic citizens. Arriving in Boston at one-o'clock the same day, they 
met with another warm reception, and were escorted by crowds of citizens to Fai 
'1a!1 an I from thence to Boylston Hall. 




April 1 7th, at eleven o'cl art th • [iment marched to the State House, n exchange 
their old muskets for the rifled arm's. Here the Governor them in the 

nentary manner, giving utteranw to sentim nts of the hi ism', and 

r A j'i'< - •'.! •.; ! : their devotion, courage, and efficiency in the causi 

h id ■■!)■•■'"['. ralli >'. to tip] rt. Ihe Governor then presented the i loi 
q ot to Col ad J< ' so re ponded with much feeling, plei g I 

: to them. Before .leaving Boston, as a mark of respect to Colonel Joi ,itwas 
de< ided to adopt, as the "'Ban', htei of the Regiment," his daughter, an intelligent and 
interesting girlof twelve years. She was presented by Major Watson, and i 
the strongest demonstrations of joy. At seven in the ( vening the regiment man 
the Worcester depot, and too!; the cars for Washington, Along the i lute thi 
greeted by the people, and saluted by the discharge of cannon and tin ringing of be 
At Worcester, an immense crowd met them with patriotic den 
Springfield, where they arrived at a late hour, they were received by the n 
fir," d< nartments, and by thousands who manifested a deep in ten 5t in t! em. Arriving 
at New York about sunrise, April 18th, they received a splendid ovation from the 
soldiers and citizens of that city. While passing down Broadway, a venerable gentle- 
man, formerly o: Ipswich, Mass., said, with much emotion, " These boys won't run : 
I conn anded a regiment of them in the last war.'" At twelve o'clock, they left 
;:,( c ':■ by the Jersey Ferry. 

Crossing the river, the troops entered the spurious depot of the N. J. Railroad Co., 
which was crowded with patriotic Jerseymen and women. From the balcony around 
the building, the bright eyes of mam a fair one looked down in sparkling delight at the 
prompt match r>f the brave Massachusetts boys to their cou p.'- deferree. Flags were 
warm by kendo ds of fa-jr hands,. and while the volunteers wen , titii 
nut a few of the miniature copies of the national emblem were sjnii i:> l- : . tran fern d to 
thi ir keeping. After considerable delay, the ears moved on amidst a pe'rfect avalanche 
of cheers. 

The N. Y. Eve. Post said: "As the firs: detachment cf the army which A. Eng- 
land will speedily supply, the government, =the regiment made a highly credit.abl 
pearance, and was .shown no more attention than its promptness and patriotism rightly 
des< tved at the h mds of the peoph of New York." 

All along the route through New Jersey, the people gathered at. every station to wel- 
come them. They reach* d Philadelphia at seven -p. m., and so densely filled- were the 
streets with people who came forth to receive them, that it was with much difficulty the 
eoluum could, pm*! its way through. A member of the regiment states: "So enthusi- 
astic were our friends, that they rushed into our ranks,"threw their arm- about the 
necks of our soldiers, and emptying their own pockets for our benefit, seemed fairly 
beside themselves with joy. I doubt whether old Massachusetts ever befon or since 
received such encomiums, or her sons such a generous welcome, as on that night h tl e 
city of brotherly love." 

After partaking of supper at the Continental, the troops were quartered at. the Girard 
House. ij> ; t hardly had they sought the repose so much needed, after their hurried and 
exciting journey of the day and previous night, when they were aroused by tin i . 
roll calling i! em to arms, in consequence of information brought by Col. Phillips, of 
Woi ;ester,to the effect that arrangements were being made to dispute their passage 
throng! Baltimore, and that, to save : the capital, it was necessary to reach there ef e 
another ni; r. Colonel Jones immediately, resumed the march, and took the ears for 
Baltimore, tt em. o'clock on tin- mqrnii g ef the 19th of April. 

the following report by Colonel Jones, in regard to the passage through Baltimore, 
General Butler's adjutant, April 22d, after the regiment had arrived in 

jor William II. Cltjmence : — 

ai • e with Special Order No. 0, I proceeded' with my command toward the 
ii :■ >n, [■ tving Boston on the evening or* the 17th April, arrived in New 
[jori inj of the 18th, and proceeded to Philadelphia, reaching that place 
<v uing. On our way John Brady, of Company li, Lowell, a as taken 
iei ti ing ir unsafe to have him accompany the regiment, 1 left him at De- 
prsey, with I.'C. Buck, with directions that he should telegraph Mayor 
Lowell, as ; • the disposition of him ; and we proceeded thence to Bal ti- 
ll it pi u e ■■• :, >on on the 19th. After leaving Philadt lphia, 1 received 
tt our pa -sage through the city of Baltimore would be resisted. I caused 
u te distributed and anus loaded, and went personally through ihe ears

".Reaching Baltimore, horses were attached the instant that the locomotive was de- 
tached., ai i the cars were driven at a rapid pace across the city. After th< cms con-

Colonel Sixth Regiment, 21. V, M., in service of iJtt>^' r ' States." 

At ■■':'■ -r statement, from a member of the regiment, gives some additional facts in 

• ■ ' ) the order in which the regimentwent " through Baltimore/' It states: — 

" '•• : • ■; we \i ft Philadelphia, which was about 1 o'clock on the morning of April 19th, 

■" ■■ ; " ipp iTent to the regimental officers that difficulties would attend our passage

icer*, and was afterwards the oc"- ; .>n of unhappy results. The great

cceded in replacing the car upon the track. At this tirin tbei ir< much excited, 

and many missiles were- thrown at and into the car. We proceedi : 01 to ] rati Jti et, 

nearly opposite the dock, when the mob surrounded the- <:-<.v, and, detwbing the h( 
stopped the car in suspicious proximity to a large pile i ;" pavrn - - tone ■. ! f ere a most 
furious and determined attack was made with s.ton< • and ot! 
wounding several in the c ^r, and makii tg ( . it aim 03 1 a complete ^ reek. ^ 
fired upon, the fire was returned from the cur. Major Wats i i ord< n the command to 
shelter themselves, so far as was possible, by lying upon the floor 
went out into the crowd and by threats, enforced by the formidable appear mce of his 
revolver, compelled the driver to reattach the horses, end, amid a fresh volley, ir went 
forward a short distance, when the horses were again detached. Hero the crowd wan 
less numerous, and Major Watson succeeded in again getting the hoi d, and 

the car was drawn to the Washington depot without furtl •' IS ulty, oth< i han an 
occasional stray shot or brickbat and torrents of imprecations and threats. Arrivi : t 
the depot, we found Col, Jones and start', and the entire portion of the regiment that 
had prrceded us, and ascertained thai, they had made the passage wit;,'-.-. ith< i moles- 
tation than insulting language from the rioters, and also learned that the orderof march 
had not been c rried but because the horses were attached to the front car so rapidly, a d 
for the same reason, as the Colonel alleged, there was not time for him to countermand 
his order to march. We also then learned further that another portion of the regiment 
had not arrived, consisting of Company C, of Lowell, Capt. Poliansbee, Company I, of 
Lawrence, Capt. Pickering, Company L, of Stoneham, Capt. Dike, and a part of Com- 
pany D, of Lowell, Cape. Hart. These companies were the ones separated from to 
in trie making up of the train at the crossing of the Susquehanna. The mob so tore Tip 
and obstructed the track, that they were compelled to march through the city, and it 
was their march which lias been so generally des< ribed in the published acc< unto, 

"•'While Major "W. and Capt. Sampsons eompauj were engaged with the mob,, as 
before related, it was not known to them that any of the regiment were left behind, nor 
sF : as it known what had become of that peri-ion of the regiment undei immi diate 
inand of Col. Jones. After the entire regiment had arrived at. the Washington depot, 
v e wore further delayed some time by obstructions upon the track. During al 
time the car* were surrounded by the furious crowd, and occasional shots were exehanj ed 
between them and the soldiers. Here for the first time the police appeared, and seemed 
to work earnestly in keeping the crowd from contact with the regiment. The police 
force accompanied the train, as far as the Relay House. The whole passage through 
Baltimore must have occupied over two hours." 

Another member, who was with the first companies who passed safely through the 
city, says : 4i Unknown to the officers of the regiment, a change was made in the forma- 
tion of our line, by which three companies, who should have been first through thecity, 
-'.•ore made to bear the brunt of the fight in Baltimore, a few hours later, and thus 
those companies to whom the fight justly belonged, much to their regret, passed through 
the city without sharing it." 

From the foregoing statements it appears that most of the regimental officers, with 
the following companies, — A of Lowell, B of Groton, E of Acton, F of Lawrence, 
II of Lowell, and B of Worcester, with a part of Company k of Boston, passed 
through the streets to the Washington depot, without serious in jury, but not without 
grtMs insults and "danger from the assaults of the mob! The last ear, however, convey- 
ing these companies and one containing a portion of Com] my K_ r with. G&pi. Samp- 
so;i and Lieut. -Cot. Wmsoq, ermounte.vd a serious charge from the -. ' oists, who 
were, however, successfully repulsed, and the car passed on ; only a few of the members 
receiving wounds or bruises from, the stones and missiles which broke in the car win- 

As soon as these cars had passed, the rebels, *«we ten thousand strong, and com- 
posed mainly of toe >; roughs," which distinguish to. t city, made preparations to more 
effectually prevent the passage of the remaining troops. They barricaded the streets 
and removed the rails from the track, rendering the passage bv the cars impossible, and 
Companies and Dof Lowell, I of Lawrence, and L of Stoneham, found that thej 
should be compelled either t.. force their way on foot through the hostile ranks, or 
return. The latter alternative never occurred to gallant men, for on to Wash- 
ington was their inspiring thought. Knowing the righteousness of their cause, they 
believed that " the gates of hell could not prevail against then;." Leaving the cars, 
they formed in order, and heroically breasted the storm which so fearfully raged around 
them. As they left the cars, their ears were saluted with cheers for Jed'. Davis and 
South Carolina, and their eyes were offended by the waving of secession flags, and they 
were told to " dig their graves," and, informed that •• thirty of us can whip the whole of 
you," "Massachusetts men are good for praying, but not for fighting," with other gross 
and insulting language; But the soldiers heed 'd it not? they were bound on a holy 
mission, and proceed* rl to execute it a ..or Hess of ai tacks or ins ults. 

Capt. Follansbee, being the senior officer present, took the j t < f honor, and the 
•mm; anie 3 started at one? to rejoin the' regimen 1 . The rabble which had foil iwed an 1

than two hundred — they became embolden I, and increased t) 1 ii rii ', m . .- me brave 
soldiers marshalled themselves for the contest, amidst the thousands who had sur- 
rounded them, and who were intent on their destruction, An eyi -witness writes : — 

"The Massachusetts men formed in line and wheeled into open column of sections 
and marched some distance at ouick time and then at double-quick, all the- while sur- 


rounded by tl mob— to the 'mil housa id — yelling

A member of one of the companies, after describing th • I est attack on lai ing from 
the cars, states: — 

"Jtexfc eaxne a salute of bullets, which whistled about cur ears like hail — m 
music more pleasant at a distance than close at one's ear. We did not fire even tl 
but waited until a second volley, which shot down two of Company D. Then Capf.

While walling beside Capt. Follansbee, he saw one of the mob strike down one

of the fallen man, shot the scoundrel on' the spot. This was aftei several of the i 
had felt Massachusetts lead. They fired down on tts from the windows, hou 
from almost every direction. A "leader of tire mob told us we should not leav< ■ ■ 
alive. The fellow' soon after fell, pierced by several bullets, which caused m ny his 
comrades to leave with considerable haste." 

The scene of this terrific and murderous fight was on Pratt Street, a place ever 
infamous in history, unless the repentant tears of loyal Baltimoreans shal - i 
dan rung stain from its pavements. 

Many -of the brave men, who here met the myrmidons of oppression, were the de- 
scendants of patriots, whose blood was the first shed in the Revolutionary c i 
ever memorable of April, 1775. and now, on the anniversary of that glorious day, 
the sons of such "illustrious sires "were at the post of danger, and the firet to 
their blood and consecrate a still nobler cause. ■ 

All honor to tire glorious dead who here fell, the first martyrs to their c mtry's 
cause ; their names will be remembered and cherished as household words, while thei 
countryman will eulogize their memory in speech and in song. And you «*\vhi -

the majesty of your New England character. Gallantly you peisevered ii the 
of duty, and bravely repulsed the foe, at d victoriously entered and saved thi ( ; , 
of your couptry. Proudly does Massachusetts point to the "Glorious Sixth," and 
gather fresh 1 tureis from new deeds achieved ou the 19th of April. 

But from the pleasing contemplations of such achievements we must turn an I foil 
the noble troops through still other dangers.

shared with them the concentrated vengeance of trait ors, who, m idden d

' indescribably fearful. 

Taunts, clothed in the most horrid language, were hurled at them by th< 
crowd, who, almost breathless with running, passed up to the car wind wa, tl 
the soldiers with knives and revolvers, and cursing op into their faces. The j alii 
thrown iu between the cars, and forming a barrier, the troops changed cars, many 
of ihem cocking their muskets as they stepped on the platform. 

After embarking, the assemblage expected to see the train move off, but its dep; 
was evidently delayed, in the vain hope that the crowd would disperse; but i ■, . : . 
swelled, and the troops expressed, to the officers of the road, their determination to go

removal of several rails. Disembarking, the rails wore relaid, under the protection of 
the troops. An >nal shot was fired at the troops from the hills and w©ods along 
the route, but the range was too long for an\ etl t. 

The news oi this fight was at once flashed over the telegraphic wires, ere iting a most ■ 
intense excitement throughout the country. In Massachusetts, especially, the feelin 
was not Only strong and deep-, but indignant towards the assailants, and sympathetic 
towards the victims, who had but?-, few hours b fi r< pone forth from pleasant home; 
and pe iceful pursuits to defend their country. The Executive of the State keenly felt 
the blow, and the Governor, who had just befon exchanged kind farewells with the 
regiment, immediately dispatched the following letter to the Mayor of Baltimore: — 

" To His Honor the Mayor '.; I pray you to cause the bodies of our Massaehu 
soldiers dead in Baltimore to be immediately laid out. preserved with ice, and tenderly 
sent forward by express to me. All expenses will be paid by this Commonwealth. 

John A. Andrew, 

Governor cf Massachusetts."- 

A correspondence: took place also between the G ivernor and Messrs. Gardner Bn vver 
&-'Co. of Boston, whieh reflects honor on the intelligent benevolence of that ftnij. 
They sent the following dispatch to their correspondents in Baltimore : —
